Hartford Meteorologist Tells Viewers He Had Heart Attack ‘Probably On The Air’

By Kevin Eck 

Hartford morning meteorologist Bob Maxon told viewers of NBC-owned station WVIT this morning he suffered a heart attack last week while on the job.

“Good morning everyone! As we just talked about on our newscasts…I suffered a minor heart attack last Tuesday morning, probably on the air or between the Today Show cut ins, crazy!” Maxon wrote on his Facebook page. “I’m on the road to recovery and will be back soon.”

He’s worked at the station since 1995.


Maxon said he’ll return “when the weather turns Spring like, or when the doctor says I can come back!!”
