Kirk Varner, WKRC news director, posted a statement to the station’s website saying in part,
“Tim has been on an extended personal leave. He will back to also doing the weather at 11 p.m. by week’s end.
I would like to take a moment to personally thank meteorologists Michelle Boutillette, John Gumm, Scott Dimmich and freelancer Erin Sebree—who each did a great job on all of our weather.”
Hedrick told Cincinnati.com, “I feel good. I look good. I’ve got no big concerns on this Monday.”
