Chuck George Taking Another Break at KOLD

Posted By on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 1:03 PM

Announced via a brief mention on KOLD's website, Chuck George is taking another leave of absence from his gig as chief meteorologist. In 2011, following an odd on-air segment where George slurred his words, he took a month and a half off. This will make his third seemingly-unplanned break from broadcasting.

Recently, George has had some less-prominent odd moments on air, including the one above, which was sent to us with the header "Drunk Weather?". Word is that George was having trouble on KMSB's 9 p.m. news on Friday the 5th, but when asked if these events were connected, KOLD General Manager Debbie Bush replied to Media Watch columnist John Schuster: "If you are planning on reporting that he had a problem that affected his performance on Friday night or March 13, that would not be an accurate statement."

However, George, a normally active social media user, has been absent from his public Twitter and Facebook profiles from that date.
