Lots of emails have come into my blog asking where is KTRK 13 weekend sports guy Tim Melton? Melton hasn't appeared on air since October.

As I had posted, KTRK 13 hired former KVUE sports director Hugh Lewis to fill in last February.

Now Tim Melton breaks his silence on Facebook.

"Yes, I'm still here! Sorry for being out of touch for so long, but I suffered a stroke last October and spent two months at TIRR undergoing rehab. I thank all of you who have expressed your concern as to what caused my absence, but I wanted to wait until I had a good sense of what the future holds before saying anything.

I am happy to report I'm getting better every day.

My thanks to all my friends at Channel 13 for their concern and support. Thanks to the doctors, therapists and nurses at TIRR. And special thanks to my sons and wife, who have had to go through the recovery with me... and I'm not always the greatest patient."

Tim is a super nice guy and I wish him a speedy recovery.
