High Point, NC -- Former Fox 8-WGHP TV Meteorologist Frank Deal died Sunday morning. He was 84 years old.
Deal started giving viewers in the Triad their weather forecast in 1969 and remained on the air until he retired in 1996. His background in theatre resulted in some of the most memorable airtime moments in local TV history.
He was probably best known for the jokes he told at the end of his forecast.
In recent years, Deal had been living at Pennyburn at Maryfield Retirement Center. Funeral arrangements are pending.
