His raps have also made it to the homepage of AOL.com, Bing.com, MSN.com and others. Aside from making waves in the social media world, Kosir has been featured on TV shows across the nation, such as: FOX's The O'Reilly Factor, MSNBC's The Dylan Ratigan Show and Inside Edition. Kosir has also racked up six Press Club awards including best weather presentation and best light feature. He is an alumni of Mississippi State University where he earned his broadcast meteorology degree.
