Tom Skilling, an American television meteorologist, is running on his 43rd year with WGN-TV in Chicago. The local's favourite tv meteorologist however has been tight lipped for several years about his relationship status or his love interest.
Is He Married?
Well, it is still unclear whether Sikilling is married or not. Although his professional life is an open book, his personal affairs are completely under shadows.
As reported by a magazine in 2016, Sikilling mentioned,
I’ve been married to my work my whole life. I say that to people and I know they don’t quite understand it and think I’m kidding or exaggerating. But no, it really has been my life.
The 69-years-old is still single and it remains to be seen if he will be romantically involved with anyone in the future.
In addition, his fans have been curious about his sexuality since a long time, as he has kept his dating life private. The speculation of him being gay circulated a long time ago, and a twitter post made by Jeff Coen, where Sikilling is seen attaining Pride Parade, certainly escalated the speculation. However, the rumor does not hold a solid base and his sexuality is a matter of mystery for now.
