Writer and broadcaster Walt Grayson’s Mississippi roots run deep, with five generations of his family buried in Mississippi soil. Born and raised in Greenville, Mississippi, Grayson’s interest in broadcasting began early with a job as an announcer for Greenville radio station WJPR, 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 in radio at Jackson’s WSLI. Walt took a job at Jackson’s NBC affiliate, WLBT-TV, as a weather anchor in 1984. In addition to the weather, Walt also takes viewers on a “Look Around Mississippi” on the Friday 5 and 10 p.m. reports. In addition, Walt hosts and writes the Mississippi Roads program on Mississippi ETV and he contributes a monthly column, “Mississippi Seen,” for Today in Mississippi, the newspaper for the Electric Power Associations of Mississippi, on his favorite topic: all of the interesting things in Mississippi. In 1998, he wrote the text for Jackson: The Good Life, a coffee-table book on the sights and sounds of Mississippi’s capital city.
