On his blog “My Permanent Record,” meteorologist Geoff Fox is “begging” 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.”
