Greg Rule

Professional Experience

Joined the WINK News Weather team in January of 2020. Previously served as the morning meteorologist in 2019 for WeatherNation, and was the chief meteorologist for KREX NewsChannel 5 in Grand Junction, CO from 2013 – 2018.

Awards and Recognition

My work on the weather wall and in the field was honored by Grand Junction’s ‘Best of the West’.

News Philosophy

I worry about the weather, so you don’t have to, because you have better things to do.

Hobbies, Interest & Community Involvement

Obviously, I’m a weather nerd… but I’m also a father to two amazing boys, and a lucky husband to a beautiful wife, Ronelle. I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach and all the other amazing areas that SW Florida has to offer. I’m also an avid surfer and lover of the ocean. I like to boat, fish and dive. But my favorite activity is being a dad and husband.


BS in meteorology with a minor in mathematics from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2011
