Dylan Dreyer Knew What She Wanted To Be From The Beginning
Born on August 2, 1981, in Manalapan, New Jersey, Dylan attended Rutgers University where she graduated Cum Laude in 2003 with a B.Sc. degree in Meteorology. While in college, she worked as a weather anchor for the Rutgers TV network and radio station.
Following her graduation, she began her professional career and worked at WICU in Erie, Pennsylvania; WJAR in Providence, Rhode Island; and WHDH in Boston, Massachusetts. Improper Bostonian magazine named her the 2008 Boston’s Best Meteorologist. Also a recipient of the American Meteorological Society’s prestigious Seal of Approval award, she broke into the mainstream in 2012 when she joined NBC News as a meteorologist.
She is the weather anchor of NBC News’ Weekend TODAY and Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist. She also co-hosts the 3rd hour of TODAY as well as serves as a weekday weather correspondent and regular co-host for TODAY and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
Dreyer is also the host of her own weekend program on NBC, Journey with Dylan Dreyer, the Telly Award-winning program that airs Saturday mornings. Moreover, she co-hosts a new Sirius XM radio show, Off the Rails, with Al Roker and Sheinielle Jones.
However, She Was A Calendar Girl Before a Weather Girl
Dylan Dreyer, the lovely weather girl that everyone seems to adore has a little-known fact about her. She was a stock photo model even before her TV career took off. She used to be a calendar girl. During her high school days, Dreyer posed as a stock-photo model after being discovered while working behind the counter of CVS, a retail and health care company. She appeared in CVS and multiple newspaper ads.
She Never Thought She Would Live In A Smaller House
After years working for the giant network NBC, Dylan Dreyer has been able to amass a net worth estimated at $1 million. Her salary, though never revealed to the public is estimated to be in the tune of $300,000.
Her hard work has afforded her the privilege to live in some amazing houses. She previously lived in a palatial home in Boston which included a garage, attic and other storage space. However, after her 2012 marriage, she had to downsize to a 750 square feet one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan, New York, for her husband’s job. They bought the home in 2012 for $580,000.
She told At Home with TODAY of the Manhattan house in 2014, “I never in a million years thought I could downgrade to 750 square feet.” “Not to mention, share it with someone else.” But, needless to say, they made it work.
While downsizing wasn’t easy for the weather girl, she revealed she has a favorite place in the seemingly smaller house. Her favorite place in the home is the kitchen which she calls the heart of the home.
“I love that the kitchen is open to the rest of the living space. “I love to cook and this way I don’t feel like I’m removed from everything else going on while I’m in the kitchen,” she said of the floor plan.
Four years later, when the duo decided it was time to expand their family, they kissed the small house goodbye in late 2016 and relocated to a new apartment. They listed the co-op for $862,000 in December 2015. She now lives in New York with her husband and sons.
Her Marriage Is A Marriage Made In Heaven
Dylan Dreyer got married to her husband, Brian Fichera from Easton, Massachusetts in 2012. He is a Nightly News cameraman and she predicts the forecast, a match made in heaven. They first met as colleagues at WHDH, Boston. Atypical of Dylan, she narrated the story of how they met in a wedding blog she set up.
Fichera proposed to Dylan in July 2011 on the front porch of his parents’ house in Easton. The couple had their nuptials in October of the following year, at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston.
Beside their love for each other, the couple also loves to travel across the country together, go out for the occasional date night, golf, and explore the world together. The love between them is so strong, and now they have two little ones, they can’t help but share the doses with them.
She Didn’t Want A Child When She Got Married
After four years of marriage, the couple was ready to welcome their first issue to the world. Dylan Dreyer announced her first pregnancy on the Today Show on June 10, 2016. As per her revelation on Today.com, the couple “weren’t in a rush to have kids and, to be honest, there was a time when we declared we never wanted kids!”
However, just in the same way they declared no child, they looked at each other one day and declared, ‘I want a baby!’ At the time, “it all just seemed right.”
The couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Calvin ‘Cal’ Bradley Fichera on December 17, 2016, at 11:52 EST. The tot weighed 8 lbs, 3 oz. They may have been nervous at first about having a child, but with the birth of their son, they couldn’t be happier becoming parents.
Since becoming a mom, Dylan has been taking her fans through her experience as a new parent, like when she struggled with breastfeeding and had to supplement with formula instead of the exclusive breastfeeding she planned. Three years later, she was ready to go the motherhood path a second time.
Despite a miscarriage on her next attempt, she was as determined as ever to have another baby. Her family grew by one on January 2, 2020, as they welcomed Oliver ‘Ollie’ George, into the world. He was born at 9:13, weighing 7 lbs, 2 oz.
