|The Weather Man, Not the Weather, Makes Headlines in Local Paper|
WRAL-TV Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel is the subject of a recent feature in The Raleigh Chronicle.
The bearer of news recently became the news as WRAL-TV Chief Meteorologist became the subject of an article in The Raleigh Chronicle. Staff writer Emily Kiser penned “Meet the Weatherman, Greg Fishel” about WRAL-TV’s staple in forecasting for the January 18, 2008, edition of the publication.
The article is a veritable history lesson from Fishel as he discusses changes in the technology for weather forecasting over the 26 years he’s been at WRAL-TV. He also shared stories from his days at the Triangle station, fond memories of times gone by.
Fishel also talks about why he’s stayed for so long.
“I think it’s just one of those things where a lot of us have come to the conclusion that the quality of life here and the way the company treats you is more important than being able to say that you work in New York or Los Angeles,” he told Kiser.
He also told her, “As time has gone on, the company that we all work for here has become increasingly unique in the sense that it’s one of the few locally-owned TV stations left in the country, and I think that’s what’s made it so attractive.”
