CBS Reported:

It is with profound sadness that we share news of the passing of our beloved Elise Dione Finch Henriques.

Elise has been a friend and team member at WCBS for 16 years. She first joined the team in 2007 as our weekend meteorologist and was most recently on the morning news with Mary Calvi and Chris Wragge. In September, Elise joined Cindy Hsu on the 9 a.m. newscast.

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.

She was our bright light in the morning. We had the great pleasure of working with Elise for 16 years.

Elise was on the air with us just this past Friday. Her death is sudden and unexpected, leaving us all trying to understand how this could happen to our beautiful Elise, who was just 51 years old.

Elise Finch’s friends and colleagues offered their condolences.
