CLEVELAND, Ohio -- We all knew it would be emotional, but FOX 8 employees had a tough time keeping it together as Dick Goddard watched his peers deliver heartfelt presentations to the legendary meteorologist.
Former FOX 8 News anchor Tim Taylor was up first. "It was the greatest honor of my life, to sit next to you for all those years," Taylor said, while choking back tears.
Next, it was FOX 8 Sports anchor John Telich, who presented Mr. Goddard with a special plaque from Ohio Governor John Kasich.
Perhaps the most touching, was Dick's reaction to his Guinness World Record, presented by the FOX 8 News in the Morning team. There, truly, was not a dry eye in the studio.
