Olivia James joined 13WMAZ in July 2013. She comes to the Heart of Georgia from the Heart of Tornado Alley in Norman, Oklahoma. Olivia graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor's Degree in Meteorology and a minor in Broadcast Journalism. Olivia interned with KOCO in Oklahoma City for a year and at KTRK in Houston, Texas.
For the last three years, she participated in OU Nightly, a student-run live newscast. Olivia knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life from a young age. Broadcast Meteorology was the place to combine her passion for the weather and her desire to serve the community. Olivia was "Sooner-Born" and "Sooner-Bred" but considers her home The Woodlands, Texas.
When she is not forecasting the weather she enjoys sports, traveling, spending time with her family and friends, and cheering on her fellow Sooners!
