FOX 8 is saying goodbye to a longtime member of our family.
After 14 years of hard work, Dan Jovic is leaving Northeast Ohio to pursue an opportunity at KTAL-TV in Shreveport, Louisiana.
There, he’ll serve as morning anchor and provide occasional reporting both on-air, and online.
Dan’s wife, Jacque, is also joining the team! She’s signed on to become the station’s evening anchor.
The move, according to Dan, is a wonderful new chapter for the entire family. Dan and Jacque’s children, 8-year-old Danielle, and (soon-to-be) 6-year-old D.J., are excited, too!
The Jovics say they’ve found an excellent school for the kids. They also love their new home!
But this transition is a bittersweet one, or as Dan puts it: “It’s tough, but it’s time.”
That’s why we had Jacque, D.J. and Danielle surprise him on his last appearance on Fox 8 News at 9 a.m., where he reported “The Download” segment.
Fahrenheit Chef Rocco Whalen also dropped by to whip up one of Dan’s favorite meals!
It was an emotional send-off for the man we affectionately dubbed “Cyber Dan” because of his countless contributions to FOX8.com.
Dan also appeared as an integral part of Friday Night Touchdown for four seasons.
FOX 8 would like to wish Dan and his family the best of luck in their new adventure!
