Meteorologists Jym Ganahl, Bob Nunnally Return to WCMH

Two meteorologists who have been on medical leave are returning to Columbus NBC affiliate WCMH. Jym Ganahl (right) will return April 15 and Bob Nunnally (left) will return April 22.

“The entire NBC4 family is pleased to welcome Jym and Bob back. While we, and their loyal fans have missed Jym and Bob on air, we’re glad they’ll be returning in good health,” WCMH news director Michael Fabac said in a statement.

In November, Nunnally sued Ganahl for libel, claiming Ganahl and “an unknown individual or individuals” made false statements that hurt Nunnally professionally and caused him to be exposed to “ridicule, hatred or contempt.” The lawsuit was settled two weeks later.

A libel lawsuit between two meteorologists at WCMH in Columbus has been settled, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
