On his blog “My Permanent Record,” meteorologist Geoff Fox is “begging”geoff fox for his job back at FoxCT.   The Tribune-owned Hartford station fired Fox on Friday for “inappropriate conduct.”  The weatherman writes:

“Some of you may have seen transcripts of what were private chats on Facebook between consenting adults on my private time.I had no idea this private conversation would be made public, but what I did was still wrong even if it had remained private.  This is a very difficult time for my family. I betrayed a trust with my wife and daughter which won’t be mended quickly. I have made promises to them I intend to keep.  Losing my job at FoxCT/Courant is also very difficult. You probably noticed I wrote about my work there with a smile on my face. I was proud to work there and proud of what we offered the public. It was the best job I ever held. I worked my butt off in gratitude.

“I know my former bosses in Hartford and Chicago will see this. I am on my knees begging you reconsider your decision and please take me back. I am asking for another chance.”

    It’s kind of pathetic. At least Congressman Wiener didn’t beg for his job back. He just moved on to do — God knows what? Then again, when confronted with the evidence, Geoff didn’t lie about it. A sad situation all the way around.

    He is a man with serious mental issues. Glad they took his site away too. Begging like a child, again for another job. He will use anyone he can.
    TRIBUNE did the right thing, I bet LIN knew of his escapades as well, thats why they dumped him. His wife should do the same.

    You know it is a sad state of affiars that we are flipping out over this one individuals poor judgement. Sadly, this is happening more and more everyday. If you are not directly effected by it you most likely know someone that is. While what Mr. Fox did was wrong and has damaged his marriage, how many folks are doing the same thing and getting away with it. This is human nature friends. We are all human and humans do some pretty screwed up things but we need to forgive and judge NOT least we be JUDGED!!!
