Is Mike Bettes Married? Inside The Metereologists Life

The Emmy award-winning meteorologist, Mike Bettes, has been married to CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar. 

Although having problems with his then-wife, Stephanie Abrams, and divorced in the process, they now co-parent their children together.

Storm In Personal Life

Bettes, age 49 years, was married to Abrams, who was his co-host on the “Abrams and Bettes Beyond The Forecast” segment on The Weather Channel.

The two having the same interest, and a similar background of education instantly fell in love with each other and decided to get married in 2000. The two were blessed with two children; Ohio Bettes and Tallmadge Betts.

Everything was seemingly going fine for the two, as the two used to run segments together as co-hosts. 

But due to mutual differences and drift in their relationship, the two separated after almost a decade-long marriage in 2009. While the reason for the separation is still unknown, the two now co-parents their beautiful children together.

Abrams, like Bettes, seems to have moved on with her life and is currently engaged. She got engaged with her long-time boyfriend Liann Freeman in 2017 and shared the news with her well-wishers on Instagram. 

Abrams might have given another chance for love, but in that matter, the 49-year-old Emmy winner also chose his path. The Meteorologist, 3 years after his divorce, moved on with his life and got married to Allison Chinchar.

Sunshine After The Storm

Despite the 49-year-old going through a hard time in his life, the 49-year-old could not stray away from dating life for long.

Like it happened the first time, it happened again. Bettes met someone with the same work background and interests as himself and fell in love all over again. 

He met CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar that is also a member of weather-focused organizations. Chinchar, as beautiful as she is, is also very passionate about animal rights and care.

She is a member of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and is actively involved in advocating the necessity of animal life. 

The two decided to get married after 3 years of Bette’s divorce in 2012, and everything has been going perfectly for this family of three on a near decade-long marriage.  

Over time, the two’s love only grew, and in 2015, they welcomed their first child, Landen Benjamin Bettes, who is now six years old. 

The family also shares a dog that they are very fond of and keep on featuring in their pictures together.

Is Mike Bettes Gay?

Like most TV personalities, Mike isn't immune to gay allegations.

As baseless and lacking in evidence as the gay suggestions about him are, the former WLOS-TV chief meteorologist has never deemed it worthy of a response. Instead, he lets his romances with women speak for themselves.

To tackle the elephant in the room: on-camera meteorologist Mike is far from being a gay man.

The Emmy Award Winner's Career And Net Worth

The American Television Meteorologist is also known as the storm chaser. Graduating from Ohio University, the 39-year-old has been working as an on-camera meteorologist since 2003.

He worked with his ex-wife for a long time, first from 2006 to 2009, where he hosted the show Abrams $ Bettes Beyond the Forecast, and from 2009 to 2012, he hosted Your Weather Today and went on to host Wake Up with AI

Despite being known for reporting VORTEX 2, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and other tropical weather disasters.

He is mostly known for chasing the EF3 tornado in El Reno, Oklahoma, which sadly led his crew straight to an accident that tossed his SUV 200 years into the field and made the riders severely injured. Thankfully, Bettes was not in the car and was not injured. 

He is now seen on “The Today Show” and has not let go of this two-decade-long career. But, as much as thrill the experience of his job might give him, it is equally dangerous. Being one of the most experienced and courageous field meteorologists helps him bag a salary of almost $100000 annually. 

Being in the field for so long and having a good annual salary ensures the net worth of the Emmy Winner to be in the millions.
