’20/20′ Interviews Meteorologist John Bolaris About His Roofied and Robbed Story

Longtime WTXF meteorologist John Bolaris, who left the station earlier this year following a controversial interview with Playboy in which he recounted being roofied and robbed while on vacation in South Beach, will be featured in an upcoming episode of ABC’s “20/20,” discussing his well-traveled story.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Bolaris was interviewed recently in New York and Miami for “20/20.”

“I have no control,” Bolaris told the Daily News about the upcoming piece.  “I’m just as interested to see how the piece airs as anyone.”
