Tom Skilling, WGN-TV chief meteorologist, appears weekdays on WGN Midday News, WGN Evening News and WGN News at Nine. He celebrated his 30th anniversary with WGN-TV in August 2008.

Tom's passion for weather, his graphics-packed presentations and tireless attempts to explain the weather, led to a daily column and his own weather page in the Chicago Tribune and a weekly series on WGN News, "Ask Tom". Tom is a member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), the National Weather Association, and Sigma Chi. He serves on the AMS nominating committee and holds the AMS's Television Seal of Approval. In January 1995, Tom received an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities from Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois.
