When you stop doing your Rip Van Winkle act and pay attention to the news, you would know these questions. Point one, Ganahl signed a 7 year contract last summer/fall. Point 2, Ganahl announced Friday the 1st that he was taking leave to get his knees replaced. Bob Nunnally is also on medical leave, so they have brought Melissa Barrington back to fill in while those two are out. Finally, Point 3, Ganahl has worked way more than 15 days this year.
Obviously, you either don't have your TV on, or you are sleeping during the newscasts.

Even with the best of what cleveland and cols had to offer he was always my fav. when bad weather came i always turned to him. thanks a lot time warner money grubbers you took away my fav weatherman here in mansfield

But I still remember all the spontaneity TV had back in those days. I can remember those gimmicks where they were doing the weather and Bob Hope might wander onto the set to "surprise" the weatherguy.
Now, it's just plain boring to watch.
At the end of the day, who really cares that Ben Gelber understands what all those colors on the radar mean? Just tell me what the temperature will be tomorrow and for the next few days. Otherwise, I want to be entertained.
they've cut weather down to the short hairs becuse all we want to know is what it is going to do tonite and tomorrw.
Jim good at splaining it all.

I'm not sure if Jym still does it, but he used to be an "actor" in the Tecumseh production. Maybe that's where he's been?

What younger women? He was engaged and lost alot of weight which made him able to fit into his army uniform from years ago,(very tight) this was veterans day in November of 2012. He immediately started gaining his weight back and the engagement was called off. He did not marry. Todays Columbus Dispatch told how he has not been on TV since early December 2013. He had a stress test on December 12th and went into full cardiac arrest(died) and the doctors brought him back. He has lost 50 lbs, alot of it water from the heart failing gradually. He is still losing and on a low sodium special diet and exercise so if he does not stick to it this time he will lose his life. He is expected back January 20th. I knew the lady and her son that he was engaged to, nice people but she did not want to marry someone who did not take his health seriously and value his time with her.

When did he marry a younger women??? He was engaged and she ask him to lose weight and get into good health so they could have many years together. His goal was to get into his old army uniform by Veterans Day 2012, which he did even though it was very tight. He immediately started back to his old eating habits and gaining his weight back, the engagement was broken. She must have figured he did not put much value on their relationship. Now, for those who do not read the Columbus Dispatch, todays had this info. Jym had a stress test on 12-12-2013 and went into full cardiac arrest(died) doctors brought him back. He had congestive heart failure and had gained 90 lbs. He has lost 50 lbs due to eating right on low sodium diet and diaretics and has another 40 to go. He has to eat correctly for the rest of his life and exercise or he will lose his life. He is due back on channel 4 on January20th. I have lost one classmate for the same reason, a second one in ICU now, also for same reason, touch and go, don't know if she will make it. A 3rd classmate is on kidney dialysis for same reasons. You cannot eat all the wrong foods in large amounts which includes junk food and set for hours without exercising, weigh twice what you should and expect to have good health. I hope Jym takes it seriouly this time, I do like him.
