“Faster than lightning, hardier than hail … it’s chief meteorologist Greg Fishel of WRAL, readers’ choice as Best TV Personality!” reads the special profile Cary Magazine wrote for Fishel’s honor. “Fishel keeps us smiling no matter what the forecast, with his wide repertoire of jokes and puns. For this photo shoot , he headed into our studio bearing his very first barometer, ‘because the pressure is on!’”
Fishel joins WRAL-TV in sweeping the top honor for his category every year since the Maggy Award began in 2006. First in the Best Meteorologist category, and as of 2014 in the newly combined Best TV Personality.
