Rob is an AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist and two time Emmy Award Winner. He holds the National Weather Association Seal of Approval and the endorsement of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society.
A long, long, time ago in a farmer's field far, far away, Rob noticed a change in the wind and became fascinated with the weather. Why, you ask? (Pause for you to say "why?") Well, it was at that moment he realized he was downwind of the manure pile on the turkey farm where he grew up! After that, he watched the weather very carefully in an effort to save his sense of smell!
OK, that’s not entirely true, but I did grow up on a turkey farm and I have been fascinated with weather and broadcasting for quite some time.
Rob began his career in radio before making the jump to TV at Canada's Weather Network on "Good Morning Toronto".
After that, Rob decided to pursue my dream of living and working in the U.S. and joined Wake Up Rochester in Rochester NY. Rob also spent some time trying to make it big as a comic actor and studied the art of improvisation at Toronto’s Second City Theatre with teachers like SCTV’s Joe Flaherty!
Rob has found a home here in the great city of Milwaukee and looks forward to getting you ready for your day every morning on Wake Up -- and chatting with you all on Real Milwaukee.
