Milwaukee Meteorologist Recovering From Stroke

By Kevin Eck 

Lance Hill, meteorologist for WDJT, has been on medical leave from the Milwaukee CBS affiliate since November.

Milwaukee media writer Duane Dudek says sources tell him Hill is recovering from a stroke.

Hill’s absence has been noticed and commented on by viewers and members of the local broadcast community.


In a statement Hill confirmed that he had “a medical issue.”

“The station is working with me and they’ve been great … basically telling me whatever time you need you take it.”

Hill’s been at WDJT since 2011. Before that he worked at ABC affiliate WISN and freelanced at NBC affiliate WTMJ.
