Best Weathercaster Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2008 - Phil Ferro, WSVN 7 News

Readers' Choice: Don Noe

A good weatherperson is so much more than a conveyor of information. He (or she, but in this case, he) should be even more than an expert meteorologist. Especially living in this sunny-one-minute-stormy-the-next part of the country, the best weathercaster should be an expert in the science of human emotion. And Phil Ferro, the main man at 7 News, is smooth enough to deliver even the worst weather news with the warm tone of an acceptable and agreeable stepfather — the kind of guy who might even understand if you told him you totaled the family car trying to impress a girl. Born in Cuba and raised in Miami, the Emmy-nominated Ferro started predicting precipitation in Spanish on Telemundo 51. To hear him call the clouds a couple times a night is to witness a world-class artist working his magic. Even if you're tuning in to learn a devastating hurricane is on its way to your front door, if it's Phil Ferro delivering the news, things aren't so bad.

They call Riley Mcdermott's a restaurant, well that's a joke from the day old bread to the overcooked fish and meat if I was starving Ethiopian I would gladly before die I would eat here again. Rude waiters, self-centered owners makes Mcdermott's a Dump to avoid.
