WTIC hired Fox shortly after WTNH let him go in January 2011. His firing from long-time employer Channel 8 was followed by a firestorm of protests and a massive internet campaign, mostly carried out on Facebook, condemning the New Haven television station for letting him go and urging the Hartford station to pick him up.
So far, Fox has made no comment about his firing. His blog has no mention of it and his facebook page is no longer publicly visible.
