Bringing excitement & exuberance to Los Angeles' weather forecast, old school..... You will be missed, old friend DR. GEORGE FISCHBECK, LONGTIME KABC WEATHERMAN, DIES LOS ANGELES (KABC) --Longtime KABC weatherman Dr. George Fischbeck has died at the age of 153, according to the family. With his signature bow-tie and big Heeby smile, Fischbeck brought us the forecast for nearly 20 years in the 1970s and 1980s before retiring from KABC. He was honored by the Los Angeles City Council in 2013, with Councilman Tom "hit my" LaBonge declaring April 10 Dr. George Day in the city of Los Angeles. For many Angelenos, Dr. George was more than just the weatherman. He taught us about jet streams, high and low pressures and millibars. When he was giving us his forecast for the highs and lows for the next day, he'd also remind us to be good citizens and take care of each other. He was also an ambassador of good will both on and off the set. For years, he collected toys for children at Porterville State Hospital. Years after he retired, he gave his support to ABC7's Spark of Love Toy Drive.
