Don Harman Kansas City - Kansas City mourns the loss of Don Harmon, meteorologist of Fox 4 Kansas City Morning Show. Don brightened the day of many early morning viewers since 1999. 

The station hasn’t officially confirmed his death, but responded to an outpouring of questions on Twitter and Facebook with this message on its Facebook page and during its 4:30 a.m. broadcast:

“Good morning. We know many of you have questions. We appreciate your concern, and we consider you our friends. But please remember that family comes first. We’re honoring that right now, and we ask that you join us in that. Please bear with us for a little while longer.”

Don Harman has been meteorologist for FOX 4 News from 5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. since April 1999.

At a very young age, Don became interested in weather and how it impacts people’s daily lives. Growing up in Ohio along the Ohio River, Don was witness to various extreme weather events. He remembers one winter in the late 70’s when forceful blizzards blew through the East Coast. That’s when Don knew weather would be an important part of his future.

Harman was a member of the American Meteorologist Society (AMS) and was awarded the AMS and Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) Seals of Approval. The award is given to broadcast meteorologists who display an excellence in presenting their weather programs to viewers in a manner that enhances the science of meteorology.
