Meteorologist Eric Burke joined the NewsCenter1 Weather team in February
2012. Eric attended Northern Illinois University in DeKalb,
Illinois. He studied meteorology and broadcast journalism and earned his
Bachelors of Science Degree.
Eric began his broadcasting career during his college years working as a
weathercaster, producer, reporter and anchor for NTC News Tonight. In addition
to that, Eric interned at WREX NBC in Rockford, Illinois and WFLD Fox Chicago.
Starting his television career at NewsCenter1, Eric began working weekends.
He now enjoys waking up before sunrise to bring you the most accurate and up to
date forecast each morning during the only live morning show in Rapid City.
It’s not all weather all the time for Eric, in his spare time he enjoys
cooking, barbequing, cheering on his beloved Chicago Blackhawks and ripping
divots in local golf courses with friend and mentor Chief Meteorologist Bob
Riggio. Eric says there is nothing quite like a Harley ride on a nice day
through the beautiful Black Hills.
