Kyle Roberts is a meteorologist at WFAA in Dallas, TX, specializing in weather forecasting and reporting for television and digital outlets.
1) Who are you? North Texas is my home, and I spent my entire childhood here. Went to school at Trinity Christian Academy before leaving to go to Texas A&M to get a degree in meteorology. Growing up I was terrified of thunderstorms, but at some point, that fear turned into a curiosity to learn more about the weather. The rest is history. Plus, I grew up watching WFAA, and here I am today! I spent some time in East Texas and Oklahoma City before coming back home to work here, and couldn’t be happier!
2) What are your interests? Um, weather. Duh! I’m always watching the weather. Day off, after work, before work, etc. It’s hard to not look at the latest data. Especially if some interesting weather is heading to North Texas soon. Outside of work, I enjoy pretty much anything out in the weather, aka “outdoors”. If it’s done outdoors, I probably enjoy it. But especially, fishing and skiing. So if I occasionally leave North Texas to find some snow, please forgive me! And of course, I love spending time with my wife, Rachel, too!
3) What do you like about working at WFAA? I enjoy working at WFAA because it is a dream come true! I grew up watching this station and interned at this station at the end of college. It’s incredible to work here every day. But it is not just because it is the station I grew up watching. WFAA has a reputation and pedigree that now being a member of is a true honor. This makes coming into work not feel like a job at all. The entire weather team is a joy to be around. Late nights, early mornings, and long days of severe weather go by much quicker being around a great group of people.
4) What's one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? If I’m watching TV, most of the time it’s sports. But if channel just so happens to switch to The Bachelor, or it starts magically playing off of the DVR, I won’t turn it off.
