Caspar features the WRAL Chief Meteorologist in “WRAL’s Greg Fishel: Weather Hound” for the January/February 2005 edition of Cary Magazine.

“Greg said that every day, he feels fortunate to have a job where he gets paid to do what he loves and work with an incredible staff of good communicators and good scientists,” Caspar wrote.

She focuses on Fishel’s career as a meteorologist, the nuts and bolts of how he reports the weather, how he found weather reporting as a career, and his philosophy about his work. She also talks about Fishel’s infamous sense of humor.
