The 2 a.m. alarm every Monday through Friday has become routine for Ed McIntosh, the morning meteorologist on KTVQ's Montana This Morning and on the statewide Noon News.
Ed is used to early starts, with jobs on Billings radio and TV stations dating back to the 1980s.
In fact, along with his Q2 TV weather duties, you can hear Ed's voice on weather forecasts virtually any time of the day on a number of local radio stations. He is the weather voice of the Northern Ag Network, with affiliates across a multi-state area.
A winner and finalist multiple times of the E.B. Craney Weathercaster of the Year award, Ed has also been awarded the Seal of Approval of the American Meteorological Society in recognition of the quality of his television weather broadcasts.
Ed is proud to be part of the popular and long running "Lonnie Bell's Classic Country" radio program on Sunday mornings. It is a four hour program of stories and country and western music from classic artists to local entertainers.
A native Montanan, Ed was born and raised in Sidney. For fun, Ed enjoys playing music, and is a KCBS certified barbecue judge. He and his wife, Sandi, have three grown daughters.
