John O’Connor, anchor at Montgomery NBC affiliate WSFA, has returned to work after heart surgery. WSFA meteorologist Eric Snitil posted a photo of O’Connor (right) to Facebook, with the message “so happy to see our buddy John O’Connor back behind the anchor desk only a little more than 4 weeks after sextuple bypass surgery. Hasn’t missed a beat!”

O’Connor reported having chest pains while walking a flight of stairs, and was in surgery days later. Doctors say he’s recovering well.
