I’ve Got A Billboard, Indulge Me

It’s pretty over-the-top to see one’s self glaring down at the highway from a fully illuminated billboard.

You want me to be modest about this? I cannot. I apologize. It’s pretty over-the-top to see one’s self glaring down at the highway from a fully illuminated billboard.

As thrilled as I am about this billboard I will NEVER forget the reason FoxCT wanted me was because of all of you. Please, smile with me.

Thanks to “Big Show” Andy Zaremba who went out in the drizzle to shoot this for me.

  1. Awesome! Now they should do a group picture of the distractions! lol, you know the ones who now watch Fox on Fox!

  2. I wasn’t sure your head could get any bigger. You have once again proved me wrong πŸ™‚

    LOVE it Geoff.Congrats.

  3. Geoff, That is awesome! Enjoy the Lights!! It has been so good to “see” you again! I missed you, and now you’re back! Good Luck!!

  4. This is great, amazing. You were knocked down, got up, dusted yourself off, and now you are up in lights. Like the old saying goes, when one door closes, you never know what will be behind the next door that opens. In your case, a giant billboard. It is good to see you again.

  5. They treat you really good at Fox now huh? lol.

    Congrats! I’m very happy that you’re being appreciated at the new station!
    Our household left WTHN for you!

  6. This is what I like to call Karma. Hope the ex execs have to see your smiling face everyday on the way to and from work!!

  7. Geoff… from here on every time YOU WIN… WE WIN vicariously.

    For all the times anyone has been bit by the system and couldn’t do much about it seeing you surface @ FoxCT and shine so well makes us all feel a bit of satisfaction.

    You fit in really well there, and I’m enjoying the Science spot @ 4. Kids growing up watching you on TV are going to have a good head start at understanding WHY things work the way they do.

  8. Congratulations! I think it only counts as self-indulgence when you put it in your own front yard. Otherwise, it’s just good karma! And you’re looking very much at home there – (on Fox Ct, not on the billboard…) never skipped a beat. I hope the ratings continue to improve, as all of us distractions get comfortable with our new TV news home.

  9. LOL You deserve at least this after what you went through. It’s nice to know your appreciated. FoxCT. rocks and fox on fox is awesome!!!!!!love it!!

  10. You have a billboard on I-91 south, on the left, in New Haven before you get to I-95. Saw on the way to work in the morning. πŸ™‚

  11. Geoff-

    See this every morning on 91S on my way to work and wondered what it was like for you to see it! Have been a fan of yours since you spoke to our Mass Comm class @ Quinnipiac back in 1998!

    Glad you’re having the last laugh!

  12. Smiling? I’ve got a grin the size of Oklahoma!!! I try not to be negative, but I have to agree with Debbie…I hope the GM of WTNH goes by the sign every day—twice—on his way to and from work!! But actually, I’m even happier if you see it twice a day!! (Wouldn’t mind if you took a couple extra rides up and down the road, just to be sure you saw it right, of course.)
    We’re awfully proud of you, ya know.

  13. Geoff, its FANTASTIC!
    Your Billboard is a Wonderful sight to our eyes! Not to mention your broadcasts on FOXCT! What a great COMBO-Geoff Fox on Fox!

    That “other” station has gone down hill all the way around! It NEVER plays in our house since your departure. I’m sure all the “distractions” who no longer view that ‘other” station are soon to make a real dent in their ratings down the tubes real soon!
    Goeff,Your billboard is THE VERY BEST! Congratulations!

  14. Some days are just better than others. This is one of those days. For all the anger and frustration I felt when tnh ripped our favorite weatherman away from us, I am now enjoying this vindication. I agree with Deb. I so hope those “suits” have to drive by your smiling, happy face every morning and evening. Part of me would like to buy space below it and flash the words, “the distractions have spoken”….. LOL… Yes, indeed, it has been a very good day! πŸ˜€

    1. I totally agree with Evi! This is all so cool and well deserved!
      We are all smiling with you and very, very happy!

  15. Not to many billboards in my neck of the woods. I did want to say that I don’t go to bed at night until I’ve checked your blog one more time though.

  16. Congrads on the sign. We watch you every night on Fox on Fox. we will be passing it tomorrow night. I also hope your ex sees it on his way to work. I’m sure Fox is happy (a little play on words)

  17. What a wonderful tribute. Goes to show when you’re in the right place they know how to show you appreciation and respect. You would never have gotten a billboard from WTNH. FoxCT really has gone out of their way to treat you well and you’re fitting right in with their crew. I watch you at 11pm and you’re doing great. Keep up the good work Geoff and keep smiling.

  18. How about we all print that picture out and send along with a nice note the the general manager at WTNH.

  19. I love it! I would have a good laugh over this one too. Enjoy the attention, you deserve it! What a nice twist on things. Have a wonderful day Geoff

  20. Awesome billboard – well deserved. Great things come to those that wait. Your billboard on Elm St. would be the ultimate although I don’t think in your heart you would want that. You as well as I just can’t forget those few favorites left at 8 dealing with the crazyness that’s going on there. Hopefully they will do as well when they are out. Kudos Fox on Fox.

  21. Any chance the dope from NEWS8 that fired you drives by this every day? πŸ™‚ THAT WOULD BE SWEET! I may take a drive that way just to see it !! No one is more deserving…….. Give us some feedback on how you like it so far???? seems to me it is a perfect fit for you, you get your weather gig, +++ you get to dable in science and tech. Seems lust like everythign you love !!!

  22. Geoff, I LOVE THE BILLBOARD! I live in Fairfield county so I do not go over that way too often. We (you fans) love you Geoff, so happy you are still in CT. I could not be happier.

    ps. I missed you on the 4pm last night, but right before 5pm I saw you walk through the studio in front of the camera. You looked like you were on a mission πŸ™‚ congrats Geoff you deserve nothing but the best.

  23. Congratulations, Geoff! I’m thrilled for you! I watch you every day at 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. I’m proud to be a distraction. πŸ™‚

  24. FoxCT needs to place that billboard on the corner of Elm St. and State St. in New Haven. WTNH needs to see it glowing in all it’s glory…that Geoff Fox is back and bigger than ever..!

  25. For all of the happiness that you bring the people of CT, you deserve some happiness for yourself!!! I’m sure many of us are smiling with you.

  26. Yay for you! Now that you’re back on tv, I can watch the weather again next time I go home to CT! I admit that part of me is still disappointed you didn’t move to Asheville..Especially last night when the tornado warnings were up and I wanted someone I trust to explain everything…not used to tornado warnings!!!

  27. Usually these ‘anchor heads’ are shown ACTUAL SIZE! Not in this case — for a guy who spends his time with his head in the clouds, you’re the most grounded I’ve ever seen in our business.

  28. Geoff, Harold and I are so very happy for you. It’s
    refreshing to know that Fox is treating you well. You
    deserve all the wonderful things that have been happening to you. Thrilled in Orange!!

  29. Hello Fox on Fox! We are doing another happy dance for you. Can you just imagine how happy Fox was to get you. They took out a full newspaper ad & now a billboard. So happy Fox is keeping our Fox happy!Congratulations. H&J

  30. Hi Geoff, I agree with everyone else that you deserve this! Continue to enjoy watching you on Fox and it looks like you are completely at ease now and having fun with the anchors! You are definitely a loss for WTNH.
