WJW Weatherman Recovering From Hip Surgery After Fall

By Kevin Eck 

Dick Goddard, the longtime WJW weatherman, was hospitalized Friday after falling at his home.

The Cleveland Fox affiliate reports the 85-year-old Goddard is doing well after hip surgery. He had just finished a daylong telethon to benefit the Animal Protective League in Cleveland when he fell.

Fox 8 spoke with Dick by phone Friday morning, and when asked if there was anything the station could do for him, Dick replied “get the Browns a quarterback.”
