Owain Wyn Evans

BBC weatherman Owain Wyn Evans is positive role model

Evans, who grew up in a working-class family in Ammanford, became the presenter of S4C’s Welsh language children’s news programme Ffeil at just 18. 

His screen test was nervy, but “they must have seen something because I had no experience”, he said.

Since 2012, he has presented the weather for the BBC across the UK, bringing his flamboyant personality and social media innovation to forecasting.
