8-Year-Old Gives Halloween Forecast on WABC

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

In New York City, an 8-year-old’s Halloween costume got him some attention on WABC.

Peyton Gilbert dressed up as an Eyewitness News reporter this year.

His father tweeted a picture to the newsroom.


“My Son Loves watching you guys in the morning!!!!! He wants to be a ABC 7 reporter,” he tweeted.

His son was wearing a suit and holding the signature microphone with the Circle 7 mic flag.

So when meteorologist Lee Goldberg was doing a weather hit on the Halloween forecast, the station took a live hit from Long Island where Gilbert was standing by to give the forecast.

“It’s not too cold. It’s not too hot,” he said during his live report.

Gilbert also predicted there would be plenty of M&M’s and Reese’s Pieces while Trick-or-Treating.
