Popular longtime Tucson, Ariz., weatherman Michael Goodrich was brought back to local television in part by a "where-are-they-now" piece done not by his old station but by KGUN(TV) Tucson, now his home.
Goodrich, 61, had retired to Oklahoma in 1998 after more than 20 years at KVOA(TV) Tucson. It was not as idyllic as he'd imagined.
While there, he'd been tracked down by former rival KGUN-TV for an update.
"After a while, it became apparent for personal and financial reasons that I should go back to work. I wanted more FM radio, more TV and more volleyball" than Oklahoma offered. "I felt like I still had a lot of energy left and wanted to meet people and have a good time. When I decided to come back, I called KGUN-TV ," he said. "It was either that or stand on a street corner holding up a sign that said 'Will Work for Viagra.'" Actually, Goodrich said, he'd worked for KGUN-TV 30 years ago, before he got to KVOA . "It just fell into place. I still show up well in the research."
