I really enjoy the spooky season, but I enjoy scary stories any time of year. I have always been a fan of scary movies, ghostly tales, and paranormal reports. As a kid, I was running home to watch Ancient Aliens after school instead of soap operas like some of my friends, and nowadays I casually enjoy thriller movies even when I’m home alone. I guess you could say I enjoy the thrill of it all.

When I heard that the SouthCoast was riddled with ghost stories, it had me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more, and the Fun 107 crew is lucky enough to have a paranormal investigator to aid me in all things scary.

Tim Weisberg is Digital Managing Editor for Fun 107 by day and a paranormal researcher by night, diving into the spooky side of the SouthCoast and beyond. With his help, I learned about some scary legends of the area that make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

Over the years, the concept of the Triangle has expanded to include ghostly reports, UFO sightings, cryptid encounters, alien abductions and more across a wider swath of Southern New England.
