Cindy Fitzgibbon’s Life Without the Camera
Cindy Fitzgibbon was born in Virginia but spent a fair amount of time in Windham, Maine. From there, Fitzgibbon eventually found herself heading to Lyndon State University in Vermont to study for her career as a meteorologist. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology.

Fitzgibbon is fairly active within her community of Natick. When possible, she likes to devote some of her time to projects that help promote women going into science, like the Discovery Museum “Smart Gals” Program, the Jr. Sci-Tech Girl STEM Expo, and the Science Club for Girls.

Life in Front of the Camera
Shortly after Fitzgibbon finished her schooling, she began to work as a meteorologist for a CBS affiliate in Bismarck, West Virginia known as KXMB-TV. That was followed by a stint at WPTZ, an NBC affiliate based in Burlington, Vermont.
Expanding her knowledge and experience, Fitzgibbon eventually moved to WFXT where she became the morning meteorologist for Fox25 Morning News. Her work with WFXT earned her a Best Weathercast Award in 2003 from the Associated Press and she was nominated for numerous local Emmy Awards.
In 2013, Fitzgibbon began working with WCVB’s EyeOpener and Midday Meteorologist.
Where Is Cindy Fitzgibbon Now?
If you’ve tuned into WCVB over the past few days, you may be wondering, what happened to Cindy Fitzgibbon? Since people in local television move around alot, did she get hired by someone else or was she fired? Did she have to move? Fans want answers!
As much as these speculations can sometimes be filled with drama an intrigue, the truth is mundane. Fitzgibbon is away due to having surgery on her ankle. Apparently, it’s been an issue since she was a teenager, but it has recently caused her more problems. That’s why she’s been absent from our screens!
Hopeing for a quick recovery. Keep your chin up…and your ankle.

Unfortunately, Fitzgibbon has to stay off her feet for a few weeks, which is why she had to leave the newscast. But, the surgery is not life-threatening, so within a few weeks Cindy Fitzgibbon should be back on air, much to the delight of her fans!
