Mark Fryklund Career

Fryklund serves as a photojournalist and a First Alert storm chaser for KOCO 5 News. He is a four-year veteran of television news. His first professional position was with KBJR-TV in Duluth, Minnesota. His next position was at KARK-TV as a photojournalist in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Mark joined KOCO-TV in 1984 as a photojournalist. He commenced covering weather events frequently in 1996. Since that time he has been serving to improve his skills at storm chasing by taking storm spotter pursuing courses through the National Weather Service every year as well as learning from meteorologists at KOCO.

Mark’s most unforgettable moment of storm chasing was in May of 2011 following the tornado that eventually struck Piedmont. The whirlwind was wrapped in rain, so they couldn’t really see it. Nevertheless, they were close enough to feel the storm’s force, which almost lifted their truck off the ground. They waited for the storm to pass over the interstate, then proceeded at a safe distance

Mark is thrilled about storm chasing because it gives him the chance to use his training to benefit the public in times of weather emergencies. He knows that viewers depend on local news coverage of storms to keep them safe, and he feels that KOCO is dedicated to keeping the people informed when the weather turns bad.

When he is not chasing storms, Mark enjoys carpentry as well as camping and fishing with his family. He is part of Quail Springs Baptist Church, where he operates on the audio/visual team and trains third-grade Sunday school. Fryklund also has a  drone pilot license.
