Burris comes to the NBC affiliate from its Hearst-owned sister station WPBF in West Palm Beach. The Sentinel posted a memo to staffers from news director Bob Longo who said,
“Eric is a familiar face to many of us here at WESH. He’s been with our sister Hearst station WPBF in West Palm since 2006 and filled in here at WESH during 2007 and 2008. Eric is a terrific scientist with easy on-air skills and top-notch weather graphics abilities.”
Burris starts at WESH the week of October 22 which is in one month.
