WROC Chief Meteorologist Tells Viewers Heart Condition Keeping Him Off Air

By Kevin Eck 

WROC meteorologist Scott Hetsko posted a video to facebook telling viewers why he’ll be away from the Rochester CBS affiliate.

“The heart condition that you probably know I have over the last six years has gotten quite worse in the last year or so,” said Hetsko. “Unfortunately things have gotten to a point where we need to take more dramatic measures to keep me going down the road here.”

Hetsko told viewers he may be away for quite awhile and not to worry about him and his family. Click here to view the video.


The Rochester Democrat reports Hetsko’s heart condition has caused him to take time off from the news before.
