Meteorologist Sam Kantrow joined Storm Team 8 in February, 2011, first as weather producer and web meteorologist for WTNH, and is now the on-air meteorologist for the weekend editions of Good Morning Connecticut.
Born and raised in Hamden, Sam is a graduate of Western Connecticut State University and has a B.S. in Operational Meteorology and Weathercasting. Before coming to News 8, Sam interned at WVIT in Connecticut.
A local boy through and through, Sam’s weather interest began at a very young age, when the tornado that went through Hamden on July 10, 1989 narrowly missed his house! Ever since then, he has loved the weather, and anything about the weather. Sam grew up watching the meteorologists on News 8 and always wondered what it would be like to be in their shoes.
In his spare time, Sam enjoys traveling, DIY projects, carpentry, and loves cars (and weather of course).
