Cameron Hopman is the Chief Meteorologist at WEVV-TV
Originally from the Chicagoland area, Cameron was raised in Tinley Park, Illinois. In 2006, he began attending Eastern Illinois University where he originally enrolled as a Secondary Education Major.
However, a childhood fear of storms evolved into a fascination during his sophomore year Weather and Climate class. After switching his major in early 2008, Cameron started registering for as many Meteorology and Climatology courses as he could. His work as a part of the Eastern Illinois University Weather Center led to his volunteering at Eastern Illinois University's award-winning student run newscast WEIU-TV's News Watch.
During the following two years, Cameron worked both in front of and behind the camera gaining experience in every facet of the newscast. He graduated from Eastern Illinois University in December of 2010 and began his career as a Broadcast Meteorologist at WLFI-TV in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Cameron received his National Weather Association Broadcaster's Seal of Approval in July of 2015. He accepted the position of Chief Meteorologist at WEVV-TV in June of 2018.
