Timothy William "Tim" Deegan is currently the chief meteorologist for First Coast News on television stations WTLV/WJXX in Jacksonville, Florida. Deegan presents the weather segments on First Coast News, weeknights at 5:00pm, 5:30pm, 6:00pm and 11:00pm. [1]



Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, Tim graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas with a bachelors of science degree in meteorology. He was an avid surfer in college, taking several trips to Baja California to take on the waves there.

Deegan is a member [2] of the American Meteorological Society and the broadcast carries their coveted Seal of Approval.



First job

Deegans first weatherman job was with station KBTX-TV when he was still in college. The show was Good Morning, Bryan & College Station where he gave the weather forecast beginning at 5:30am. At the end of the show each day, Tim went off to class.


When Tim Deegan started at WTLV in 1982, he was 22 years old with blond hair and he loved to surf. Deegan originally started at WTLV as the main weather anchor for the station's morning show, "Good Morning Jacksonville." He became the station's Chief Meteorologist in 1986.[3]

School visits

Tim tries to visit one school per week to teach kids about weather. He will also recount his trip with the Hurricane Hunters into Hurricane Gilbert in September, 1988.


Tim has 3 children (Shawn, Emily & Corryn) with his previous wife, Kathleen, [4] who has primary custody in Davis, California. He occasionally mentions them in his daily weather segment.

Tim wed First Coast News (FCN) anchor Donna Hicken in 2002, who was previously married to FCN Sports Director Dan Hicken. Donna did not change her stage name to Deegan until October 29th, 2007, which coincided with a complete graphics package change for the News department.
