Eric Burris Career
Burris serves at WESH 2 Orlando, Florida as a First Alert Meteorologist. WESH 2 First Warning Meteorologist Eric Burris is delighted that his colleagues, family, and native Winter Park are predicting the weather! He helped cover Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Jeanne, and Wilma after Eric graduated from high school. With second-to-none experience, this armed him and prepared him for the transition from behind-the-camera to on-screen work.
In 2006, Eric was hired at WESH 2’s sister station, WPBF-TV in West Palm Beach, but he didn’t stay gone for long. In 2007, Eric helped WESH cover the horrible Groundhog Day tornadoes, and he began filling in on weekends at WESH, eventually joining the WESH weather team full-time. While attending high school, Eric began his weather career at another Orlando TV station. His thirst for meteorology actually led to the development of an internship program by Seminole County Public Schools that would allow him to get credit.
Weather is the only thing he’s ever wanted to do, and he’s regarded affectionately as a “weather dork” in the newsroom. When not on the air, Eric works behind the scenes assisting the 26 other weather departments of Hearst Television, helping to develop the country’s best-looking, simple, and easy-to-understand graphics.
When coming to his education, he is a grad of Lake Howell High School, Mississippi State University, and Seminole State University. However, his fondest memories take him back to his time at the University of Central Florida (UCF), where he played the UCF Marching Knights baritone. Eric enjoys communicating via social media, loves to have live Facebook conversations, and regularly tweets weather info.
