Fox 26 KRIV anchor Jose Grinan has been a fixture of the Fox owned and operated station's morning news for twenty plus years. So when he "disappears" from the anchor desk, viewers notice.
But Grinan has a very good reason for being away, he's recovering from surgery. Here is what he posted on his station Facebook page:
For the next few weeks, I will be resting and recovering from a neck vertebra surgery that was a bit more complicated and more serious than I thought.
But I am so very thankful that I was able to take care of it before it reached that point of no return in my health, especially at my age. I miss inter-acting with all of you. And, I look forward to my return.
In the meantime, Tom Zizka has returned to the morning news to fill-in for Grinan.
Here's to a speedy recovery Jose! We know you can be a "daredevil."
Grinan missed some time from the news back in 2010 after suffering from a stroke.
