What Is It With Traffic Reporters?

Another one has transitioned. Do you remember Zoey Tur who transitioned last year and caused quite a snafu? Well we have another traffic reporter transitioning.

Frustrated commuters are familiar with the deep voice of Scott Eck, who reports from the skies in the WBZ NewsRadio 1030 helicopter, describing traffic snarls during rush hour every weekday morning and afternoon.

On Wednesday morning, the 45-year-old reporter signed off using a new name: Kristen Eck.

Eck’s gender transition may have surprised listeners, but it wasn’t news to family and friends. Eck picked out her new name two years ago and began the process of transitioning a year ago, and now she’s telling the world who she really is.
Let’s hope she does a better job than Zoe Tur.
