Bob, the senior chief meteorologist at WKOW-TV, earned his bachelor’s degree in meteorology from the University of Wisconsin in 1979 and began his career in 1980 at Weather Central, a Madison-based private weather forecasting company specialized in forecasts for ski resorts, agri-business, power grids, the Wisconsin TV Network, and more than 40 other radio and television stations nationally.
Under the direction of broadcast meteorologist Terry Kelly, Weather Central produced one of the first tv weather graphic computers. Bob was on staff in 1980, when a tv weather graphic system based on one of the first Apple personal computers was introduced.
During his time at Weather Central, he saw the gradual growth of new generations of weather graphics technologies, which revolutionized the television weather broadcast industry.

He is a founder of the Citizen’s Energy Lobby, a non-profit, non-partisan coalition focusing on public strategies to solve climate change solutions.
