Jeremy LaGoo joined KREM 2 News in October of 2020, as the meteorologist on Up With KREM.
Jeremy grew up in Minnesota traveling around the Midwest selling corndogs in the family food truck. The sense of adventure instilled in him at a young age took him all over the country forecasting weather. Starting in the Midwest, he eventually moved to Portland, then the Philippines, followed weather stories around the country before landing in Denver, then Alaska, and now Spokane.
In Alaska, Jeremy worked for KTVA in Anchorage as the morning meteorologist. He was part of an Emmy Award winning team that broadcast in the aftermath of the magnitude 7.1 earthquake that struck on November 30, 2018. When the ground wasn’t shaking he stayed busy monitoring wildfires, record heat, and the brutal winters of the Last Frontier.
A passion for weather has been the foundation of Jeremy’s career. Long before he was a meteorologist he would track winter storms moving across the country in hopes of finding fresh snow to ski.
When he’s not at work, you can find Jeremy outside. Usually rock climbing or trail running, but the pursuit of fresh snow come winter is still what drives his passion.
