Lots of things happening since the last time I talked with you. On March 18, I had bilateral knee replacement surgery. My knee joints are now made of metal. This can be a good thing and a not-so-good thing. The good thing is they are supposed to be permanent, which means no more arthritis pain. The bad thing is the pain that occurs whenever the weather changes. I am like a barometer — I can tell whenever a front is moving into the Valley.

I want to thank all of you out there for the phone calls, e-mails, Facebook posts, wonderful comments, well-wishes, prayers and genuine caring you have shown me over the last three months. Y’all are WONDERFUL!!!

Many of you know, I’ve been on the morning news show since 1980.  I joined my dad, Grady, on the show “Mornin’ Folks.” In fact, The Huntsville Times did an article calling me the “Morning Man.”

When I returned to work in May, I was asked to anchor the 9pm news on WHNT2. Believe me, working at night is taking a bit of getting used to after 34 years of doing mornings.  It does feel pretty good to be back on the desk in the anchor seat. Maybe I should open the newscast by singing the old Gene Autry song, “Back In The Saddle Again.” Then again, maybe I shouldn’t.

I hope you will join me Monday thru Friday nights on WHNT2 for WHNT NEWS 19 at 9. I promise I won’t sing. I will do my best to bring you news you want to know.  Jason Simpson, our Chief Meteorologist will be my wing man. He’ll also have your Weather Where You Live Forecast.

Here’s where to find WHNT2.

    Glad you are back Robert. Unfortunately, I have Comcast but don’t have HD so no longer receive WHNT2

    So glad you are back, I’ve missed seeing you. I’ll tune in to WHNT2 but I don’t know if it will be the same as seeing you in the mornings. PS your Dad was friends with my dad, William Cooper Green. Jr

    Robert, Glad you are back, we missed you. Do you still interview persons who are promoting their organization. I am from the Marine Corps League and we would like to promote our veterans organization on WHNT.
