Brittney Bryant

Meteorologist

Memphis, TN

As a born and raised Memphian, Brittney always dreamed of being a meteorologist in her hometown. Her stepdad, Brian Teigland, was a Memphis meteorologist, and she had big aspirations to follow in his footsteps.

Brittney graduated from Ridgeway High School in 2007 and received her bachelor's degree in communications and information with a focus in broadcast news from University of Tennessee in 2011. The various classes in journalism honed her skills in writing and reporting for broadcast, print and digital news. While a student at UT, Brittney DJed a weekly soul and blues radio show called Soul Power on WUTK-FM. After UT, she set out to expand her knowledge of meteorology at Mississippi State University.

Brittney graduated from MSU with a master's degree in broadcast meteorology in May 2014. In addition, she gained teaching experience as an instructor for the Beginning TV Production class at MSU and also published a paper with a group of her peers about how viewers perceive colors on weather maps. Brittney also participated in a storm chasing class where she learned how to forecast tornadoes while out in the field. Brittney tracked an EF-3 tornado in El Reno, Oklahoma and an EF-4 tornado in Bennington, Kansas.

Brittney got her start at WMBF-TV in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where she reported on Tropical Storm Arthur and Tropical Storm Ana. There, she gained valuable experience in forecasting for winter and severe storms. She is so happy to continue her career at a station she grew up watching, WMC Action News 5!

Brittney loves to see live music, watch the Memphis Grizzlies and traveling. She also enjoys cooking and trying out new recipes in her free time.

Meteorologist Brittney Bryan can be seen on weekday mornings on WMC Action News 5 from 4:30 to 7 a.m.
