After 9 weeks of absence following an on-air broadcast where Frank Somerville appeared to slur his words, the veteran newscaster has returned to KTVU. That's the good news.....the not-so-great news is we don't know what the heck happened to cause him to leave in the first place.
Neither the station nor Somerville himself has publicly addressed his behavior that night in May that resulted in his "extended nine-week vacation." At the time of the incident, a spokesperson for Fox simply said, "We can confirm Frank is taking time away from the desk to focus on his health and we welcome his return when he is ready." It is nice to see that he is back in action, however, do you feel like we are owed an explanation???? Check out the infamous broadcast below, what do you think happened???
