Eric Finkenbinder is a proud native of central Pennsylvania. He received a B.S. in meteorology from Penn State in 2003 and started working with long time weathercaster Chuck Rhodes shortly after graduation. Eric was honored to work with Chuck for the first 5 years of his career, especially since he inspired Eric to pursue meteorology at an early age. This will be Eric’s 14th year with abc27 where you can see him during the weekday evening newscasts.
Eric is now the lead forecaster for the abc27 weather team and has won several awards over the last few years including Best Weathercasts from the Pennsylvania Associated Press Broadcasters Association and Simply the Best Weather Personality and Reader’s Choice awards by Harrisburg Magazine. Eric is also a member and seal holder of the National Weather Association.
When Eric is not at the station, you will likely find him working the fields on the family farm in Perry County. Any additional free time is spent with his wife and daughters in the backyard, near a local stream or deep in the woods.
