CAUSE OF DEATH: CBS star, Elise Finch, died suddenly

CAUSE OF DEATH: CBS star, Elise Finch, died suddenly.

Announcing her unexpected death the station said: 'It is with profound sadness that we share news of the passing of our beloved Elise Dione Finch Henriques.

'Elise was a gifted and consummate professional who took great care with her work. She was also a wonderful ambassador in the community, including her hometown of Mount Vernon.

'Above all, Elise was a fiercely loving and devoted mother to her daughter Grace and wife to Graig Henriques, who is a photojournalist at WCBS.'

Mother-of-one Finch died at a local hospital but her cause of death has not been determined. Heartbroken colleagues are mourning the death of the CBS New York meteorologist Elise Finch who suddenly died over the weekend aged 51, just days after appearing on air.

Finch had delivered the weather forecast for New York for 16 years, most recently last Friday - two days before WCBS announced her death.

Colleagues remembered Finch as a beloved coworker and friend. “Elise was fiercely loyal to those she loved, a straight shooter, a consummate professional, and made me laugh until I cried,” Jessica Moore, weekend evening anchor on WCBS, posted on Twitter. “But above all she was completely devoted to her family, especially her daughter Grace. I love you so much, my friend. Heaven now has an angel like no other.”

WCBS anchor Chris Wragge tweeted, “My heart is broken. Our team will never be the same. No one matched musical wits better. I’ll miss you much.”

Finch joined the CBS New York weather team in April 2007. Previously she was at NBC where she served as a meteorologist for the “Early Today Show,” MSNBC and NBC Weather Plus. Prior to NBC, Finch was the weekend weather anchor at the CBS affiliate in Phoenix, Ariz., and before that, she was an anchor and reporter at the CBS and Fox affiliates in Youngstown, Ohio, and the ABC affiliate in Austin, Minn. Finch started her career in TV behind the scenes at E! Entertainment Television, where she served as a production coordinator for special projects and live events.
Finch first started out as a weekend meteorologist in 2007 and was most recently on the morning news, delivering her latest forecast just last Friday afternoon.

Last night at 6.42pm, WCBS presenter and Jessica Moore visibly choked up as she announced the death of her colleague on air. 

She echoed WCBS' statement, adding she and her colleagues were 'joining Graig and Grace in their grieving'.

The anchor also said: 'There was no one like her. We're all gonna miss her very much.'

On Twitter, Moore wrote: 'Elise was fiercely loyal to those she loved, a straight shooter, a consummate professional, and made me laugh until I cried. 

'But above all she was completely devoted to her family, especially her daughter Grace. I love you so much, my friend. Heaven now has an angel like no other.'
