Who is Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel?
Born James M. Cantore on the 16th of February 1964, in Beacon Falls, Connecticut USA, Jim is a 54-year-old Caucasian meteorologist nicknamed ‘Storm Tracker’, best known from being one of the most memorable faces on The Weather Channel, on which he relays the situations of various calamities, often after going to the scene himself. Aside from TWC, he hasn’t worked for any other news channel, being active in the sometimes lucrative reporting business since 1986.
Early Life and Education
Jim’s family moved early in his life, and he was actually raised in White River Junction, Vermont USA. Although not much information is available regarding his early youth, it is public knowledge that he attended Lyndon State College and graduated with a BS degree in Meteorology in 1986. His peers apparently called him ‘Rocky’ in college.
In The Groin
One of the most scandalous videos featuring Jim Cantore emerged on the 28th of January 2014, while he was doing a live on-location report near the College of Charleston, South Carolina. In the middle of his report, and seemingly out of nowhere, a young man unexpectedly started shouting and charging at the famous meteorologist. As if completely undisturbed by the situation, Jim casually raised his knee in the direction of the attacker and landed it into the man’s groin. Even though this was technically an act of violence, it was in self-defense, and Jim was never blamed for this incident. The identity of the young man remains unknown.
Since Jim wasn’t generally seen posting any pictures with women after he divorced his wife, likely helped by the fact that he did post pictures with various men, this gave rise to certain rumors regarding his sexuality. Various gossipers speculated that Jim Cantore might now be gay, but this remains pure speculation, and is contradicted by the fact that he was rumored to be dating Alexandra Steele, but that also remains unconfirmed.
What is Jim Cantore’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Jim Cantore is, as of early 2018? According to various reputable sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Jim’s accumulated wealth is over $3.5 million. Undoubtedly, the growth of this figure has been helped by his success in reporting, journalism and meteorology, especially during the years he worked for The Weather Channel. Considering the fact that his career is not over yet, this value can be expected to rise.
Concerning the physical specifications of the experienced meteorologist, his height is at 5 feet and 8 inches (1.73m), while his weight is still mysteriously unstated to the media. He is currently bald, his eyes are light brown, while his stature seems athletic, and his body quite average.
Social Media Presence
Since it is nowadays a regular thing for various celebrities to nurture a close and flourishing relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing their popularity and thus net worth, Jim doesn’t stray from this path either. His Facebook profile currently enjoys over 375,000 followers, while his Twitter account boasts more than 1,150,000 followers at the moment, and his Instagram account is currently followed by almost 50,000 fans.
