He then attended the University of Utah on a teaching fellowship where he obtained a masters degree in meteorology. He knew he wanted to teach meteorology and work in television. Now, he does both.
He began his television career at CBS affiliate KSL in Salt Lake City, then went on to become a Professor of Meteorology in Madrid, Spain. He came back to New York in 1986 to work on-camera for sister station, News 12 Long Island. Then, Eisenson resumed his teaching career at SUNY Maritime College.

At WestConn, he is also executive producer of a student TV weathercasting show called “The WestConn Weather Team.”
Eisenson has also been known to chase down churning tropical storms. Back in '98, he saw Hurricane Bonnie first hand in Virginia and experienced Hurricane Bob "eye to eye" out on Eastern Long Island back in '91.
Rob was born in the Bronx but grew up in Rockland County and currently lives in Nyack. When Rob isn’t brining you the weather he enjoys skiing and volleyball.
