Writer and broadcaster
Walt Graysons Mississippi roots run deep, with five generations
of his family buried in Mississippi soil. Born and raised in Greenville,
Mississippi, Graysons 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 Jacksons WSLI. Walt took a job at Jacksons 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
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 Mississippis
