A fan favorite of morning news and known across Central Ohio for his “Forrrrecast” as well as his enthusiastic personality, Phil Kelly is making a return to WSYX/ABC 6 and WTTE/FOX 28 starting August 22, 2022.
A fan favorite of morning news and known across Central Ohio for his “Forrrrecast” as well as his enthusiastic personality, Phil Kelly is making a return to Sinclair’s Columbus, Ohio, duopoly of WSYX (ABC 6) and WTTE (Fox 28) starting Aug. 22.
Kelly, a former morning anchor and weekend meteorologist, left the stations in January to spend more time with his family.
Kelly said his schedule will change to be more family friendly, as he will host Good Morning Columbus, Monday through Friday and do the weather on WSYX at noon.
Kelly was born and raised in Columbus and joined WTTE in 2010.
“Columbus loves Phil Kelly and so does his ABC 6 and Fox 28 News family,” said Nicole Hogensen, the station’s news director.
“Phil has a reputation for keeping us informed about the weather and being entertaining on television, truly a win-win for ABC 6 and Fox 28 News viewers,” she added.
WSYX and WTTE’s humorous promo posted to Facebook generated some comments.
