Dick Goddard Returns to WJW After Knee Replacement Surgery

Dick Goddard, the legendary meteorologist for Cleveland FOX affiliate WJW, will return to the air tonight after being gone for five weeks.

Goddard, who turns 82 later this month, took time off to have knee replacement surgery. He is three months away from celebrating 52 years as a Cleveland TV weatherman.

His first on-air duty will be a segment about dog and cat adoption. He will resume his weather duties Monday at 6:00 p.m.

Goddard debuted on KYW, which is now WKYC, May 1, 1961.  He moved to WJW on 1966.
