Local meteorologist Jeff Matthews from WUTR joined WIBX First News this Morning.

Matthews, from New Jersey, says the local weatherman is the "happy go lucky and bursting with love" guy.  He grew up watching Meteorologist Jim O'Brien in the 1970's who was from Texas. He appreciates his viewership and loves his job.

He says he had to work to get rid of his "Jersey" accent.  He is a fan of the New York Yankees, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Pittsburgh Steelers (check out the tie):
