Fishel told Cary Magazine how he embraces the ever-changing advances in technology in his field.

“’ “I have to be honest — I’m a geek, and I am still fascinated with data, and the interpretation of it,’ he said. His recent foray into writing scripts that allow the team to display new types of data is particularly exciting. “

The magazine also quoted Fishel as saying, “’ Accurate weather forecasts are important 365 days a year, but it’s those days where lives are on the line that my job takes on a special meaning. … The bottom line is that you want to give your viewers the best chance of getting through a tornado, hurricane, etc. with their lives intact.”
