Career Life and Jobs

The Weather Channel gave him his first job out of college in July of that year, and he has worked with the channel ever since.

Cantore has been lauded for his ability to "break down" complicated weather events into terms that the average viewer can understand. Cantore is often selected to go to report on weather events; since the ratings for the Weather Channel increase during severe weather events, Cantore has, in turn, become a recognizable figure.

His early work at TWC included developing the audience favorite Fall Foliage Forecast. He has reported from events such as the Space Shuttle Discovery launch, the "Winter X Games," PGA tournaments, NFL games, and more.

Though Jim is best known for his live field coverage of major weather events (such as Hurricanes Andrew, Fran, Georges, Floyd, Mitch and Bonnie), his contributions are well beyond severe weather field reporting. Jim was the creator, producer, writer and talent for an annual on-air segment, "The Fall Foliage Report" (which was later expanded to 1-900-WEATHER and weather.com.) During the 1999-2000 NFL Football seasons, Jim was part of the "FOX NFL Sunday" team, reporting on the games affected by the weather.

Aside from live reporting for TWC, Cantore also serves as the narrator on the TWC series Storm Stories.

He is also featured in the beginning of the ECHL's Stockton Thunder entrance video saying "Hello, this is meteorologist Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel; a special weather advisory has been issued for the Central Valley—a 100% chance of thunder."

After NBC Universal's acquisition of The Weather Channel in 2008, Cantore has occasionally filled in for Al Roker on The Today Show. He was also in London hosting weather segments for NBC during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
