Gray, who has been at the station since 1991, posted the news on his facebook page, saying, “Doctor Shockley gave me the green light. Back tomorrow. Thanks to all of your for your prayers and words of encouragement over the last 6 weeks.”
When he left WCPO, he initially told viewers he had hoped to return to the station a few weeks after leaving. “If things go according to plan, I’ll be back in late October, without the hitch in my get-along.”
Gray, the station’s evening anchor, shared the news with viewers during Tuesday’s 5 p.m. newscast. “I have the support of the world’s best wife and children, my friends here at work, and those of you who are friends at large,” he said. “And with all of you in my corner, I am confident 100 percent and strong.”
