Chuck Lofton
SkyTrak Weather

Since Eyewitness News Sunrise debuted in 1985, central Indiana viewers have counted on   Chuck Lofton's SkyTrak weather forecast every weekday morning. Known for his upbeat and friendly style, Chuck keeps viewers informed with up-to-the-minute SkyTrak weather on Sunrise from 4:30am to 7am and throughout the morning on NBC's Today Show. Chuck's weather reports can also be heard on "Jim Denney and Friends" on 95.5 WFMS-FM, Warm 93.9 FM and on the Morning Show on WLBC in Muncie.

In 2007, Chuck was named National Broadcaster of the Year by the National Weather Association. Though he wears a lot of hats at Channel 13, Chuck feels the most important part of his job is "keeping people safe in severe weather."

Chuck has covered everything from tornadoes and snow storms to the International Space Station at Kennedy Space Center, the Indianapolis 500, Brickyard 400, Colts rallies and Pacers playoff celebrations. Before coming to WTHR, Chuck was a weathercaster and general assignment reporter for WFIE-TV in Evansville, Indiana.

A frequent speaker to churches, schools and civic organizations, Chuck has been named Prodigy of Indianapolis for community service. He has been a "Master of Ceremonies" for organizations including the American Heart Association and Promise Keepers. He has hosted the "Good News Open" for more than a dozen years, an event that has raised thousands of dollars for the downtown Good News Mission.

Chuck has served on advisory boards for the Broadcast Meteorology Department at Mississippi State University and for Moody Broadcasting in Indianapolis. He was also the former national recertification chairman for the National Weather Association.

Chuck graduated from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and grew up in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois. He and his wife Mary Lou have three sons, Timothy, Paul and Phillip.
