Bill Rentschler is the Chief Meteorologist for NBC Nebraska weather team.

Bill was born and raised in Nebraska. He attended Pius X High School in Lincoln where he met his wife Katie. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he received his bachelor's degree in meteorology.

Bill spent two years at KGWN in Cheyenne, Wyoming as a reporter and a meteorologist. He moved back to Nebraska in December 2015 and was promoted to Chief Meteorologist for NBC Nebraska in October 2017.

Bill has experienced all the weather that Nebraska has to offer -- from severe weather in the Spring and Summer to blizzards during the winter months. All of it completely fascinated Bill and is what drove him to get into weather. Bill learned the ins and outs of the broadcast business in Cheyenne as well as learning how difficult forecasting can be around the mountains! He managed to survive the Wyoming wind and he's happy to be back home around family and friends.

Bill and his wife Katie are the happy parents to two cats and one dog and they're family will be getting even bigger this spring as they're expecting their first child!

When Bill isn't at work, you can usually find him on the golf course, watching the Royals and always cheering on the Huskers!
