Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — If you’re like many of our viewers, you might be wondering, where’s Jerod Smalley?

Last week, he suffered a stroke. But, he considers himself lucky.

While the stroke caused no lasting damage, doctors discovered a heart defect that will require surgery, to fix a small hole.

So, as Jerod takes some much-needed time off work, you can follow his progress online. He has been sharing updates on his NBC4 Facebook page.

He says he is overwhelmed with the support he is getting, especially from others who have survived strokes, or had to deal with a hole in their heart.

Jerod has even started the hashtag, #PatchThatHole.

Most of all, we’re all thinking of Jerod and his family during this time and pulling for a speedy recovery.
