METEOROLOGIST  ROB  JONES

 

I was born in Northern New Jersey and moved to the Tampa Bay Area when I was a kid.  My family moved back and forth from Florida to New Jersey a couple of more times, but finally settled back in the Tampa Bay Area when I was about 10 years old.

My first taste of TV was at WFLA in Tampa where I interned during my senior year of high school.  I left the Suncoast for South Florida to study weather at the University of Miami.  I studied and worked at UM's Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, an institution known for it's research.  Before graduation I had one more internship in TV at WFOR in Miami.  This experience gave me the framework I needed and solidified my career path in the broadcast world.
