Bob, with support from WKOW, often mentions climate change during his broadcast and is a frequent public speaker on the topic. Bob earned his B.S. Degree in Meteorology from the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1979. He started his career in 1980 at Weather Central, a weather consulting firm based in Madison. While at Weather Central, Bob observed the debut of the first television graphics system based on an Apple personal computer. Over the years at Weather Central he would witness the rapid development of new generations of graphics systems that revolutionized the television broadcast industry.
Weather Central also provided broadcast services to WKOW-TV in Madison. Through the 1980s, Bob presented weathercasts in the mornings and weekends. He was awarded the American Meteorological Society Broadcast Seal of Approval in 1987, and then became the Chief Meteorologist at WKOW-TV in 1989, a position he has held ever since. Bob produces and presents the weathercasts on the 5, 6, and 10 PM newscasts, Monday through Friday.
Host a Film Screening! Home Watch Parties are great events too!
Citizens’ Climate Lobby volunteers have access to several films to share with our local communities. Hosting a screening is a great way to bring together your network to activate around a local action and build community. Find more info on our national site here and on our state outreach support site here.
Many venues have most of the equipment that you would need but if not, we probably have it available for loan along with someone to help you with set up and showing if needed. ContactLinda Farmer for event support.
