During the winter of 1993, while planning our wedding day, I called WRAL and left a message asking for assistance from a meteorologist to find out exactly what time the sun would set on June 5th in Greensboro. It was very important to find this out because just at sunset the sun will
shine through the church windows and directly into the eyes of all
Living in Raleigh at that time, I was an avid listener and had great confidence in Greg Fishel. I was floored when Greg himself actually called me personally to answer my question. His answer turned out to be right, of course, to the exact minute. And he offered his
best wishes that we would have a happy marriage.
We live in Hillsborough now, and remain loyal listeners after 20+ years. This June we will celebrate 18 happy years of marriage - and it all started with saying our "I do's" under the perfect sunlight conditions, thanks to Greg.
Everyone seems to know Greg is an amazing meteorologist, but that day he called us, we also learned what a considerate person he is as well.
Thank you, Greg! Congratulations on 30 awesome years at WRAL!
