Mike Jerrick has been noticeably absent on Philadelphia's Fox 29 for some time.  Today, the station posted an update from Jerrick.

Back in January, Jerrick was suspended for an offensive comment about Atco, New Jersey's Kellyanne Conway.

After a week, he came back and apologized to his viewers.  Then he was gone again.  But this time the station reported that it was for a personal matter, according to Philly.com.

We now know, from Jerrick's letter above that he is battling depression at a facility in North or South Carolina.

Godspeed Mike.  Get well soon!
