Paul Konrad is a nine-time Emmy Award winning television weather anchor for Chicago’s top rated WGN Morning News.

Paul hosts a semi-weekly segment called “Courtesy Desk” where he takes viewer suggestions and ideas and passes them along to his on—air colleagues for approval, and occasionally, disapproval. Konrad, who is a father of four, also takes pride in hosting the weekly “Friday Forecaster” segment which features an elementary school-aged child forecasting the weather on live TV every Friday on WGN Morning News.
