Every morning you are used to seeing Eye Opener’s chief meteorologist, Kevin Roth, forecasting the weather for all you out there. But, at night, after NewsFix, he has a different job.
No, not a stripper. It’s actually sports-related.
You can catch Kevin on ESPN Radio and SiriusXM satellite radio talking about how weather impacts sports.
Sites like Fan Duel and Draft Kings pump millions of dollars into sports, all based on how the weather will turn out. If a fantasy player is played in an MLB game that gets rained out, you get zero points and lose, potentially, a lot of money.
Rain outs are a big deal, but rain, heat, and humidity also play a large role in everything from how far a home run ball flies to how many runs to expect per game.
Kevin is actually the first meteorologist to ever be hired to forecast fantasy sports. He came up with an entire grading system that helps rate the risks of playing and where to see rain -- and this new venture has taken off!
If the intersection of weather and sports is something that you’d be interested in, then follow Kevin on his twitter @KevinRothWx or check him out on ESPN Radio, SiriusXM or RotoGrinder TV.
