Meteorologist & Reporter
Ally is the weekend morning Meteorologist/MMJ for WKYT and joined the team in December of 2020.
Born in New York, but raised almost her entire life in North Carolina, Ally considers herself a southern girl and is excited to call Lexington and the Bluegrass state her home. She is also enthusiastic to experience all of the wild weather Kentucky throws at her and see some snow. Growing up, Ally had a fear of storms which as she aged, would lead to fascination and her dream of becoming a broadcast meteorologist. Ally looked up to her local broadcast meteorologists as heroes of the community and ambassadors of science, and hopes to be that in her new community. Close to home, Ally went to her dream school of North Carolina State University (Go Pack!) where she studied meteorology and was also a member of the student AMS Chapter, the broadcast meteorology club, she participated in outreach events at schools, was actively involved in her sorority Kappa Alpha Theta, and all this and more while waiting tables at a sushi restaurant on the weekends. While in school, Ally had two TV internships; one at our sister station WMBF in Myrtle Beach, SC and WFLA in Tampa, FL.
When Ally is not at work she loves to travel, be outdoors and go hiking and be on the water, try new restaurants, and of course since she grew up in Durham, NC, watch sports specifically college basketball and football. If you want to send Ally a weather photo, talk about NC, weather, or tell her about all the wonderful things to do in Kentucky send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also connect with her on Facebook as Meteorologist Ally Blake or on Instagram and Twitter as @allyblakewx.
