Grace Thornton joins KVUE Austin


Grace Thornton joined the KVUE 24 Austin weather department from WMBB News 13 Panama City, Florida.

Thornton is the KVUE weekend morning and mid-day meteorologist.

Here is what the Austin TV meteorologist posted on social media:


"New year, big changes! I am just about the happiest person alive to announce that I’ll be headed to Austin, Texas as a full time meteorologist for KVUE.

My last day at at WMBB News 13 will be this upcoming Sunday January 8th, but luckily you guys get to watch me all week long since Ross [Whitley] is on vacation!"


Thornton was with WMBB since March 2021 as the weekend meteorologist. She previously worked as an operational meteorologist for a non-broadcasting company called Maxar Technologies.

The Salisbury University grad interned with WBAL-TV 11 Baltimore, Maryland.

While we're talking KVUE, news director Christina Ginn has left to become Primetime Executive Producer for cable news channel NewsNation.  Ginn previously worked for CNN and NBC.
