Last Woman Running
Colleen Coyle of WFAA took on the BMW Dallas Marathon’s “Last Woman Running” challenge in 2016, where she started as the very last person to cross the starting line on race morning. Running in the BMW Dallas Half Marathon, Coyle attempted to pass as many other race participants as possible, raising money for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children based on the total number of half marathoners she passes race morning.
Colleen Coyle joined the WFAA-TV weather team in July 2010. She can be seen on News 8 Midday and News 8 at 4pm. Along with putting her weather skills to work at WFAA-TV, Colleen also does reporting and live shots across North Texas.
Prior to moving to Dallas, Colleen was the morning meteorologist at KPSP Local 2 in Palm Springs, California. Colleen also worked in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia as a weather producer for WSB-TV before relocating to the west coast. Colleen attended Georgia Tech and its School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences where she graduated first in her meteorology class with a Bachelors Degree in Meteorology and a Minor in Business.
Whether launching weather balloons at the National Weather Service or storm chasing in HD Chopper 8, Colleen continues to pursue her passion for weather! She also enjoys being actively involved with local schools where she introduces students to the wonders of weather and the basics of severe weather safety. Colleen has represented Texas in the Big Apple filling in on Good Morning America.
In her free time, Colleen loves traveling, hiking, yoga, running, photography, and music. Colleen’s love of running came when she moved to Dallas. Submersed in a community of avid runners, she completed two half marathons along with many 5K and 10K races. She is also a bit of a thrill seeker. She has conquered the world’s highest bungee jump in Switzerland and had the honor of flying with the Blue Angels!
