American meteorologist and Boston-based meteorologist Mish Michaels has passed away, a family person has reportedly confirmed. Mish Michael is well recognized in Boston for her on-air reporting. Although the reason behind the unfortunate death of Mish has not been revealed yet, health deterioration is something that can be predicted.
The news broke in when an official statement was released by a family spokesperson. They stated “We are so saddened to inform you of the demise of our dear Mish Michaels. Her death has left our family saddened. Mish was a loving mother, wife, daughter, niece, friend, and accomplished equestrian.”
The further remarked that “Mish was also an award-winning TV meteorologist and environmental reporter. Her professional accomplishments were impressive, but so was her dedication to assisting others via her charity endeavors. During this terrible time, we ask that our family’s privacy be respected. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. The funeral arrangements will be made public.”
The statement of the family is quite comprehensible in nature hence weakening any argument of foul play in Mish’s death. Therefore, it could be safely deduced that no doubts were raised by her family regarding the sudden death of the 53-year-old. Surprisingly Michaels was an Indian by birth as she was born in Calcutta, India.
After that, she pursued a bachelor’s in meteorology from Cornell University in New York. Not only this Mish also did her master’s in technology that too from very prestige Harvard University. Michaels began her career in New Hampshire before moving to Boston to work for WHDH-TV and WBZ-TV. She also served as a meteorologist for The Weather Channel. Her time at WGBH, the local PBS station, came to an end nearly as quickly as it began.
According to a Boston Globe investigation from 2017, the Emmy Award winner may have been fired as a scientific writer. The reason behind the same was undoubtedly for questioning a probable relationship between vaccinations and autism. The presenter of “Greater Boston,” Jim Braude, was claimed to have “raised concerns,” according to the tabloid.
Michaels was “a kind, reliable, curious meteorologist who loved science,” according to a post on WBZ-TV on Wednesday eve. She spent seven years at Channel 4, according to the broadcaster. “Mish followed tornadoes, flew into storms, and lightened our lives,” WBZ said, adding that she “always shared her interest for science and weather.”
“Mish was resolved to pioneer the way for women meteorologists, not just in Boston, but across the country. Surprisingly, in a field controlled by males for decades.” And she went ahead and did it.” Michaels is not only a meteorologist or broadcaster but also an author, and entrepreneur, according to her LinkedIn page. She was a Cornell University graduate who said that an F2 tornado “swept through her apartment complex just outside of Baltimore” while she was in kindergarten.
