Early Life and Career
There is limited information when it comes to Brian’s life before his rise to fame as the husband of Dylan Dreyer. He has not revealed a lot about his family except for the fact that he grew up in Easton, Massachusetts, being raised by his parents. There are also no details regarding his education, and his path towards becoming a cameraman.
It is known that one of his earliest jobs was with the television station WHDH, which is an independent station licensed to Boston, Massachusetts. They were previously an affiliate of CBS and then later became an NBC affiliate. though they lost that affiliation after NBC launched their own station in the area. This led him to later gain a promotion which would make him a part of the main NBC News network.
Wife – Dylan Dreyer
Dylan Dreyer grew up in Manalapan, New Jersey and began to pursue a career in meteorology while in college, enrolling at Rutgers University (RU).
The public university in New Jersey is the largest institution of higher education in the state, previously called Queen’s College before being renamed to what it is today, in honor of Colonel Henry Rutgers, a hero of the War of Independence. The university dates its history back to the 1700s, making it the eighth oldest college in the US, and one of the nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution. It was a private liberal arts college before it became a co-educational public university, and now has over 9,000 faculty members, and over 65,000 students enrolled annually.
It is known to be a Public Ivy, having educational quality comparable to that of Ivy League universities.
After completing her degree, she initially worked with WICU located in Erie, Pennsylvania, an NBC affiliate serving the area, with its signal reaching across Lake Erie into parts of Ontario, Canada. After her brief run with that station, she then worked for WJAR, located in Providence, Rhode Island.

Dylan then moved to WHDH, and after a year there would meet her future husband Fichera.
As she continued to gain experience within the industry, she became a more viable candidate to become a part of the main network, NBC News. She was eventually promoted, becoming a part of numerous news programs. She is a weather anchor, and often shares duties with Sheinelle Jones for MSNBC, as well as for the show entitled “Weekend Today”. She also makes frequent appearances on the program “Today” on weekdays, as a weather correspondent.
The morning television show was the first of its genre in the world, and is now the fifth longest running television program in the US.
It has been airing since 1952 and was dominant for most of its run until it was overtaken by “Good Morning America” in the 1980s – the two shows have been battling the ratings since then. Aside from her work with NBC, she’s also appeared in several The Weather Channel programs. She’s been with NBC for over seven years, and counting her work with NBC affiliates, makes it an over two decade affiliation with the company.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, Fichera met Dreyer while at WHDH – he joined the station a year after his future wife began working there.
The two worked together in the morning shift, but initially weren’t very close. The two started developing a friendship thanks to a mutual friend who works for the Weather Channel, and eventually began their romance after meeting socially at a party. The two became engaged in 2011 at his parents’ house, and were married a year later in a ceremony held in Boston at The Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
They have a child together, and are expecting a second in 2020, after Dylan suffered a miscarriage in early 2019.
The family initially lived in an apartment in New York City, but later moved to a condominium in Battery Park valued at around $2.3 million. Similar to television network employees and husbands of broadcast personalities, he is active online through accounts on social media, particularly on Instagram which he uses to showcase a bit of his personal life, including his family life with Dreyer, sharing a lot of photos online, often of trips during their free time.
