Geoff Fox to Fox?
That’s the question everyone is asking in the Hartford-New Haven market as the veteran meteorologist, who was unceremoniously dismissed earlier this year by WTNH after 26 years with the ABC-affiliate, was spotted making his third visit to Fox-affilate WTIC.
Fox confirmed the recent visit on his blog:
Back when I was gainfully employed I seldom visited other TV stations. Now it’s different. I drove up to Hartford to see some friends at the Courant and FoxCT. It’s a very impressive place!
I saw lots of old friends–all smiling… However, as of tonight I have nothing to report…
It’s a no-brainer that Fox would draw the attention of rival stations after being let go by WTNH. When news broke that the ABC-affiliate was showing Fox the door, local residents began “Save Geoff Fox” campaigns on Facebook and the meteorologist even received a commiserative phone call from Connecticut Senator Dick Blumenthal.
