    In March 2010, Bolaris was the victim of a "Bar Girls" scam run by an international crime ring. He was drugged and his American Express card was charged for $43,000. AMEX did not believe his story of being scammed and sent his account to collection. In April 2011, with the help of Bolaris' testimony, the FBI busted the crime ring and arrested 17 people. On or about December 26, 2011, Bolaris was suspended indefinitely from FOX 29 due to station management was not pleased the way Bolaris came across in a Playboy interview about the "Bar Girls" scam. Philly News reports that Bolaris reported for work at Fox 29 on December 22, 2011 only to learn he was suspended and was sent home, He has not been on-air since though commercials in which he was featured continued to air.

    On January 4th, 2012, Bolaris tweeted that he would like to return to work at Fox 29. However, his wish will not come to fruition because a few days later on the 11th, a WTXF spokesperson confirmed to the Philadelphia Daily News that he and WTXF mutually agreed to part ways. Philly.com also reported that on January 5th, a Fox 29 employee emailed the Daily News asking to remove Bolaris’ photo from the Fox weather forecasts on Page 2 of the Daily News.

    Would have made a good segment, shame the show doesn't go there any more with personal friends of the show.

    Weathermen are a joke. All they do is spout the same info from NOAA's website.

    Bolaris took a $750,000 year job and flushed it down the toilet. Idiot! He was warned not to do a story for Playboy Magazine. The majority of viewers of local news shows are seniors or those approaching that age.
    This moron thinks he's a "Rock Star". The conservative viewers who watch the nightly local news don't want to hear about the weatherman's sex life. They are looking for boring. The weatherman is often asked to go to local public schools to talk to fifth and sixth graders. Good luck finding another job in a top 20 market. See how you like banging housewives in Omaha, Nebraska or Boise, Idaho because that's about only place that will hire him. His days of the big cities are over.

    Howard pays him $1 a year to be his personal weatherman, he'll be fine.
