Legendary Cleveland meteorologist Dick Goddard dies at 89

Dick Goddard, who was for 5 decades the evening weatherman at WJW, died today at 89. He was the meteorologist there well into his 80's and won the world record for longest career as a weather forecaster. May he R.I.P.

That guy had an absolutely sterling reputation. I’ve never heard a bad word uttered about him.

I remember Dick when I was attending college in Cleveland some years ago. One thing he said on one of his weathercasts, that I wrote down, is that 'it can never be too cold to snow'.

Neither have I.

Dick was a true media icon and as well-loved as any media personality can be.

Was he always at WJW in Cleveland?

No. He worked at WKYC for a time before moving to Philly for a very short time but ended up moving back to Cleveland, where he started his long career at WJW.
