Anthony Slaughter has always had a love for meteorology ever since he was a little kid. Growing up in St. Louis, he was the family’s designated weather watcher, alerting them of dangerous weather in and even out of the area. From the Flood of ’93 to epic snowstorms in the winters, weather in St. Louis has always captivated him.
Anthony is currently the morning meteorologist for Today in St. Louis on 5 On Your Side. He has been back on-air at KSDK for 3 1/2 years now, after spending 5 years in San Francisco Bay. Anthony also holds a new title, dad – of twin boys, who are now 7 years old!
His weather career started in mid-Missouri at KOMU, during his junior year as weekend weather anchor. After spending a couple of years there, he came to KSDK as the weekend meteorologist. Most recently, he was the weekend meteorologist in San Francisco Bay at NBC Bay Area.
Anthony values his family for giving him the solid foundation, always pushing him to follow his dreams, and never give up. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with his degree in Environmental Science. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his kids, lounging on the beach, traveling, just being outdoors, and challenging himself in the gym. He also loves good music!
