Either WJW used some bad wording, or maybe the station was after some ratings induced clickbait.
The Cleveland station posted a story to Facebook that had many viewers believing that longtime Weather Anchor Dick Goddard had died.
In fact it was a friend of Goddard that died and not Dick.
But, the story had people clicking (Hmmmm?) and wondering if their Dick was dead?
Finally, it appears that WJW figured out maybe the story was misleading to say the least and pulled the Facebook post.
