The One Of A Kind, Geoff Fox
People come and go in the news business, but others stay in one place a long time and become entrenched in their community. Those of you who have been with Action News, News Channel 8, and News 8 over the years got to know a weather guy by the name of Geoff Fox. He was on the air there for 27 years. You saw his passion for the weather, and you got to know his family, and his dog, and his Mom and Dad, Harold and Betty. Geoff now resides in Irvine, California, with his wife Helaine and their dog “Doppler.” We thought you might like to know what he’s been up to lately. Geoff was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in July of 2016, and has undergone extensive surgery to beat it. To date, (February 2017) he is cancer free, but undergoing treatment to keep cancer at bay. And he is on air from his garage, yes, his garage doing the weather for the state of Nebraska. Having worked with him for nearly 30 years, I took a trip out to visit him.
