Walt Grayson

Walt Grayson is a 5th generation Mississippian, born and raised in Greenville.

Walt's interest in broadcasting started early. His first radio job was as an announcer for a Greenville station while he was still in high school.

His first television experience came as a weekend weather fill-in and an occasional travel feature reporter, all the while still working full time at Jackson's WSLI radio.

Walt joined the WLBT-TV team as a weather anchor in 1984. He takes viewers on a "Look Around Mississippi" weekly on WLBT. In addition, Walt is the host of Mississippi Public Broadcasting's Mississippi Roads

His hobbies include writing and photography. He shoots all of the video for his stories himself.

Walt also writes a monthly newspaper article for the Electric Power Associations of Mississippi's newspaper, TODAY IN MISSISSIPPI. And he is the author of four books: Jackson the Good Life; Looking Around Mississippi with Walt Grayson; Looking Around Mississippi Some More! With Walt Grayson, which was awarded the Mississippi Library Associations Non-Fiction Book of the Year award in 2008; and Oh! That Reminds Me, More Homegrown Mississippi Stories with Walt Grayson.
