Dani Beckstrom joined KTNV's team of meteorologists in June 2019 after years of covering hurricanes at our Scripps sister station in Fort Myers, FL. She is excited to keep the heat and leave the humidity as she makes Las Vegas her home!
Dani grew up in Boise, Idaho and is a proud graduate of Brigham Young University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. While at BYU, she had the opportunity to travel the country as a member of the BYU cheer squad and intern in New York City in the lifestyle department at NY1. After graduation, Dani spent a year in eastern Idaho working as an anchor and reporter before moving back home to Boise to take over morning weather at KIVI while enrolling at Mississippi State University to get her meteorology certification. From Boise, she moved to Fort Myers, FL to gain experience with both severe weather and tropical meteorology, and was a key part in keeping southwest Florida safe and informed when Hurricane Irma made landfall on Marco Island September 2017. Dani has experience forecasting everything from blizzard conditions to deadly heat and is ready to take on the responsibility of preparing southern Nevada for whatever Mother Nature sends our way.
When Dani isn't at work, you can find her on the nearby hiking trails, laying by the pool with a good book, or taking advantage of the great food options that Las Vegas has to offer. She's a big sports fan that grew up in a city with no professional sports teams, so she can't wait to adopt the local teams and cheer them on!
