John Carroll out at WTIC-61

WTIC-61 weathercaster John Carroll has left the station, somewhat unexpectedly it seems. His last day was June 15, an official confirmed, and yet he was recently slated to participate in a Fox-61 event next Sunday:
"Join Fox 61 Meteorologist John Carroll on Sunday, June 24th for Jordan's Journey, a charity motorcycle ride to raise money for Oak Hill, dedicated to providing services and solutions for people with disabilities."
No word yet on why, although one official said, "There were conversations (between WTIC brass and Carroll). I know that we wish him well."
Meteorologist Michael Friedmann will fill in as a search is made for a replacement.

Couldn't agree more. Michael deserves it after 10 years.

I don't normally watch Fox 61 newscasts but if he is looking for a job how about replacing the idiot from channel 8? or at least let him fill in for Gil..and Gil replaces the idiot from channel 8.

It's too bad about John Carroll. He was a pretty attractive for a weather man. Michael Friedmann does deserve that position though, especially after 10 years. Good God!
