Dick Goddard/APLCLEVELAND, Ohio -- We are so happy to let everyone know that Fox 8’s Dick Goddard is doing well following surgery on his hip on Friday.

The legendary weatherman is in the hospital after a fall at his home Thursday night. He fractured his hip.

Goddard had just completed a day long telethon on Fox 8 to benefit the Animal Protective League in Cleveland.

More than $140,000 was raised to benefit one of the many anima Wl charities Dick has supported for decades.

Fox 8 spoke with Dick by phone Friday morning, and when asked if there was anything the station could do for him, Dick replied “get the Browns a quarterback."

Doctors tell us he's doing well after surgery.

We will continue to provide you updates on how he's doing and when he will be back on air.
