WKBN-WYTV meteorologist Don Guthrie has been battling pancreatic cancer since December, he revealed in a report that aired this week on the Youngstown CBS affiliate. On a recent trip to Columbus for treatment, Guthrie brought along anchor Stan Boney, who interviewed the longtime meteorologist and his family.

“Hopefully I am going to get the thing under control and beat it,” Guthrie said. “…I love doing my job. I love trying to outfox Mother Nature every day, so I am looking forward to it.” Watch:
