Eric Sorensen is the Chief Meteorologist for WREX-TV, the NBC affiliate in Rockford, Illinois. He currently forecasts the weather for the television station's evening newscasts. Previously, Eric was the Morning Meteorologist for the station. He also forecasts the local weather for several area radio stations and is the only Meteorologist in the Rockford market who was born and raised in the city.

In 2008 the Illinois Broadcasters Association awarded Eric with the title of best weathercaster in a medium sized market. He is also nominated for a regional Emmy award for breaking news coverage.

He began his work at WREX-TV in 2003. He has also been a Meteorologist for KLTV in Tyler-Longview, Texas and KTRE-TV in Lufkin-Nacogdoches, Texas.

He is a graduate of Boylan Central Catholic High School in Rockford, Illinois. He received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.

Mr. Sorensen is known for his work with children. While working as Morning Meteorologist, he implemented "13 Weather Kids." Viewers are invited to send pictures of their children to the TV station. Each morning a child's face is coupled with a cartoon body depicting the type of weather that is forecast for the day. He also pioneered "Mad Science," a weekly segment that teaches people about science. Different experiments are performed live in the TV studio with a scientific explanation why certain chemical processes occur. He volunteers his time speaking to people about weather.
