After all, New England has more than its share of weather, so the site should get a warm reception locally, especially among longtime fans of Dick Albert, who's been the meteorologist at WCVB-TV in Boston for 31 years.
"During things like hurricanes and flooding and New England blizzards, there's a massive amount of people who are involved in the weather and want to know before it starts," Albert said, according to the Boston Herald. "Weather is more and more the lead story on local news and the story in national news," Albert said.

People such as Dick Albert, retired meteorologist for WCVB, become so much a part of our households that we regard him as a brother or uncle.
We know his stories, his quirks, his good humor. Even as the technology changed the way that weather forecasts were made and delivered, we still had the feeling that he was talking directly to us. Even though he had to stand still when on screen, you knew he had great energy and enthusiasm. So, to see him in person at The Willows this afternoon, talking with a 100 or so folks, it's not surprising that it was tough to get a picture of him. He rarely stood still. He talked with the whole crowd and we felt like he'd never left the evening news. But, he has gone. He's retired and doing well. He (a Leap-Year Baby) will have his 17th birthday next year. And, it's not likely that we'll have that kind of relationship with future weather forecasters, news anchors, or others. Dick had keen observations on the diminished importance of local news.
