Mark Koontz Update

WFMJ/21 Youngstown’s web site says meteorologist Mark Koontz has been released from the hospital today, and is recovering at home and “feels good”.

We’re still piecing together what happened to Koontz – the Youngstown Vindicator article on his health problems is now hidden behind a subscriber wall, and frankly, the Vindicator is generally not worth reading even for free. But it does appear that Koontz did suffer an apparent stroke during a recent newscast.

WFMJ says there’s no word yet on when Koontz will be back on the air at the Youngstown NBC affiliate.

The station’s web site has an E-Mail link and an address for people to send well wishes.
