Rob Satkus has had a life-long fascination with weather - especially severe weather, enhanced by a close encounter with a tornado in Tulsa on June 8, 1974.

He began his storm chasing "career" in 1985, strictly as a hobby. Since then, Rob has seen over 100 tornadoes, experienced 100+mph winds and softball sized hail. In 1993, the opportunity arose to become a StormTracker for NEWS 9 and he has been here ever since.

From 1993 to 2000, Rob chased with Val Castor and from 2001 through the present he has been chasing with Tom Pastrano. Rob has also been working with Val at Castor Weather Inc., a meteorological consulting service, since 1995.

Rob's outside interests include photography, soccer, fantasy football, disc golf, billiards, music and napping.
