  1. BS, Meteorology, '11 -- The Pennsylvania State University


Rob grew up in the small western Pennsylvania town of Blairsville (Indiana County) and knew from a young age that his career would involve weather. He attended Penn State and became actively involved in Campus Weather Service. He was also actively involved in “Weather or Not” and “Weather World,” shows created by the Penn State Department of Meteorology & Atmospheric Science.

After graduating from Penn State with a degree in meteorology in May of 2011, Rob worked for two years as a meteorologist at WABI-TV5 in Bangor, Maine. While living in Maine, he had the chance to forecast hurricanes, snowstorms, and blizzards. He also got to do some hiking, ziplining, and snowmobiling in an outdoor adventure segment called “Roaming Rob.” In October of 2013, Rob changed scenery and began working at WANE 15 in Fort Wayne, IN as a Meteorologist/Co-Host/Reporter. There, he experienced everything from tornado outbreaks to wicked winter weather. 

Rob came back to his old stomping grounds at Penn State in November of 2018, serving as host and forecaster for Weather World.

In his spare time, Rob enjoys traveling, hiking, wine-tasting, watching movies, and spending time with friends.
