Imagine dining at an upscale restaurant and being serenaded by the sounds of a tuba – played by your local weather forecaster.
That happened Tuesday night, when WRAL meteorologist Greg Fishel performed “Auld Lang Syne” at 18 Seaboard in Raleigh.
Fishel’s concert came as a surprise as members of the WRAL weather team had a goodbye dinner for Nate Johnson, meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner wrote in a Facebook post. Though the gesture was directed at Johnson, Gardner said the whole restaurant reaped the benefits.
Never miss a local story.
Johnson, who joined WRAL in 2007, announced in late October his departure from the Raleigh station to take a position with NBCUniversal.
