Eric Fisher Named Chief Meteorologist For WBZ-TV News
by Hunter Sousa on Sat, 30 Nov 2013 00:16:30
Ive stopped watching WBZ news since Eric joined. Todd should have remained his role as Chief Meteorologist. Eric should have been put on the morning and noon slot and Todd should have remained as afternoon and evening Meteorologist. WHDH/7 News is now my primary news channel.

Why was Eric Fisher chosen as Chief Meteorologist when Barry Burbank has been with WBZ for 35 years?

After watching Eric Fisher for several weeks, I far prefer Todd Gutner who seems more sincere, more real, is pleasant and upbeat and gives a very clear weather forecast. Eric Fisher is trying too hard. Todd Gutner did a great job, so why replace him? And Barry Burbank is the ultimate professional.....I can see where loyalty and professionalism gets you at WBZ.

I think bz made a BIG mistake!!! Todd Gutner & Joe Joyce are 2 of the best in N.E.!!! This new guy has me watching ch 5, he is way to obnoxious foe meI

don't like this move thought gutner did good job I miss Melissa mack..............new guy does look like soap star........need a woman on weather team......barry and joe do good job too...........

He started in the AM, now he got demoted?
by dckelley4342 on Sat, 24 Aug 2013 23:58:36
I don't like BZ as much as I used to. It's just a continuous loop. I like Todd Gutner.
by FrustratedEd on Fri, 23 Aug 2013 22:42:11
I can't believe BZ is doing this again. It changes personnel at the drop of the hat, and good people at that. Still miss Lobel, Joyce K., Liz Walker, Bruce S., etc., etc. I'm not saying the new guy isn't good at what he does but Todd did a fine job and I thought his personality was fine. The pot shots saying he was too old and had a superior attitude? Give me a break!

Good going, WBZ!! Sounds like Eric Fisher is a winner, a real pro. I agree with the criticism of Todd. He looks and acts like Joe College. Not overly professional. Melissa Mack was a total loser. She didn't have a clue. But I do like Barry Burbank and Joe Joyce. We are lucky to have them on board.

todd gutner is the best next to barry.. I will miss todd in the evening news!!!!
by Wicked Red on Wed, 21 Aug 2013 17:41:12
And he LOVES to laugh and be silly !
by WickedRed on Wed, 21 Aug 2013 17:43:44
Who is Chief M now, LOL????? Todd?
by David on Sun, 18 Aug 2013 19:57:36
Why did Todd Gutner get switched to the mornings? Shouldn't the new kid on the block get stuck working the graveyard shift? Sounds unfair to me.
by Linda on Sun, 18 Aug 2013 19:08:18
I agree with Marie,, Barry is the best, love having him back in the morning.
by Marie on Sat, 17 Aug 2013 07:45:29
WBZ-TV should have cloned Barry when they had the chance.
by ladybug828 on Sun, 30 Jun 2013 19:06:39
Joe Joyce is great, I wish he were on more often! He would be perfect in the mornings with the AM crew. Love when I see him on in the mornings, should be much more regular!

EXCELLENT POST, Mikey. Very funny. Thanks for the chuckle.
by wilmington on Fri, 28 Jun 2013 06:48:51
Hopefully this means Joe Joyce is going.....
by 1stackmack on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 18:55:52
kate and todd were funny during the old news at 9.
by 1stackmack on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 18:59:17
l'm surprised barry last this long. liz walker , bob lobel , joyce K and bruce schwegler.what bz needs is a looker,another melissa mack.
by LizzieHJ on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 18:35:22
Joe does some funny stuff, he's a great personality!

Gutner's looks might bother you but the inaccurate forecasts and superior attitude bother me. He just said late last week regarding the heat & humidity that we should "get used to it" as it will stick around for "days and days".......today in Boston was like 70 degrees! Wrong again Todd!
Viewers frequently get directions from this guy to "clean the gutters", "clear the driveway", "put a fleece on the kids", etc. Get's me annoyed, just deliver the weather.
And Barry must be one of the most tolerable and humble human beings on any TV station as they have never given him the title of Chief.....good luck 'BZ, you go through weather people a lot.....
by gramps, on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 12:54:28
Well it's about time, BZ is getting a new PM weather guy...!
Gutner is getting too old, with his graying hair & wrinkled features....Look's sometimes like he slept in his suit & wears the same old tie, week after week..!!...&....is turning your female PM weather viewers away in 'droves' !
Good thinking 'BZ' !
Want to improve your weather broadcasts?
Get the same 'graphic package' that NECN has that can show the streets & neighborhoods that are about to get 'clobbered' by a tornado !

Why is Barrys role so small? He is the best. I will only watch on the weekend when he is on.
by JohnC on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 08:47:11
The bit a few days ago with Joe and the molten-barbecue sauce was hysterical. I thought Kate Merrill was going to collapse laughing.
by LizzieHJ on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 06:06:48
We love Joe Joyce, he is spot-on most of the time, funny and a great personality, especially with Kerry, so much fun together! They were the best combo you guys have had in a very long while!
by mikey on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 06:41:50
Getting up at around 2 AM or so to do the morning show must be hell. If I were doing the early morning weather forecast I imagine my first (and last)one would probably go something like this, "It'll be partly sunny or partly cloudy - take your pick. You may or may not need a coat or sweater - you figure it out. Do I look like your mother? If the temperature falls below 32 degrees it'll probably snow if it doesn't - it won't. I'm guessing science in middle school passed you by. Yeah - that's right I get paid for being wrong. You got a problem with that? Like I care. Where the hell's my coffee!!!!
by Jaygee on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 01:22:04
I'm trying to figure out why a local television station requires 4 different meteorologists to tell us what the weather "might" be in 7 days. Of course, by the time the 2nd day is over, the forecast has completely changed.
by JohnC on Wed, 26 Jun 2013 22:51:31
I hope that Barry's diminishing role at WBZ is his idea. It would bother me a lot if I thought that he is being eased out after all these years.
by JoMG on Wed, 26 Jun 2013 20:21:50
I'm very disappointed that Todd will not be on during the evening broadcasts. He is one of the best meteorologist you've had.
