WJXT’s George Winterling Home After Hospital Stay

Longtime WJXT chief meteorologist George Winterling has returned home following a hospital stay and a week in a rehabilitation center.

Winterling’s family sent a photo into WJXT of the veteran weathercaster relaxing at home in his favorite chair.

“He wants to thank all of you for your get well wishes and support,” anchor Rob Sweeting told viewers this week (video here).

Earlier this month, Winterling, 80, was hospitalized for an unspecified illness.  He has been with the station since 1962, although he stepped away from daily forecasting duties two years ago.
