Kylie Bearse is a Meteorologist at 9NEWS in Denver, Colorado.
She joined the 9NEWS weather team in April 2018 as the weekend morning meteorologist. On top of forecasting she has a weekly segment called “The Feed” exploring all things food in Colorado. She also hosts the Unpretentious Theater Review with straightforward and lighthearted reviews of shows. An avid hiker, Kylie has a hiking blog called “The Approachable Outdoors” encouraging people to get out and explore Colorado no matter their skill level.
Kylie graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in broadcast journalism, but found a way to start forecasting during her time at CU doing ski reports on the campus sports program. Kylie is now a certified meteorologist after going back to school at Mississippi State University.
After CU – and a brief love affair with Perugia, Italy – Kylie started her career at KIFI in Idaho Falls, Idaho. From there she moved a few hours south to forecast for KTVX in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Kylie returned to Colorado from Minneapolis and is still thawing out from the bitter cold of the upper Midwest. While at WCCO-TV, she was the host and meteorologist for WCCO MidMorning at 9 a.m. – which is an hour of news, forecasts and a lot of fun.
The daughter of a pediatric nurse, Kylie spends a lot of time in Children’s Hospitals either featuring the kids and programs, volunteering or fundraising. She’s on the Associate Board for Girls on the Run and is a celebrity ambassador for "A Precious Child," a fantastic non-profit that provides Colorado families with the essentials that so many of us take for granted.
The weather isn’t nearly as much fun to forecast if you aren’t getting out and enjoying it – so say hi if you see Kylie running, hiking, skiing and exploring all that Colorado has to offer!
Also, Kylie loves visiting schools across the state – if you want her to come to your classroom to chat about weather shoot her an email!
