John Fischer - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

Chief Meteorologist

John Fischer


When it comes to Michiana weather, John doesn't miss anything. He's been forecasting thunderstorms and lake effect snows here since October 1994. John started on the morning show, then in 1996 moved to nights.

While John now calls Michiana home, he is originally from New York. He honed his meteorological skills in a couple tough-to-forecast New York cities - Buffalo and Syracuse. He also worked in Knoxville, TN before coming to FOX 28.

John is proud to hold the Broadcast Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society. He also has the Broadcast Seal of Approval from the Meteorological Board of the National Weather Association. These Seals are difficult to earn. To earn them, John has to maintain a high level of forecasting accuracy and meteorological knowledge.

The 5-degree Guarantee is one way John shows viewers they can depend on his forecasts. And viewers know they can depend on John's forecasts just by looking outside.

John and his wife, Kathleen, have two daughters. In his spare time, John is an avid gardener. He also enjoys walking and reading.

As chief meteorologist, you can see John on FOX 28 News.
