WTVT, Channel 13, meteorologist Andy Johnson was a victim of an assault last week in Miami.
Johnson was assaulted while in South Florida to attend a meteorological conference.
The incident happened on Friday and a suspect was arrested in the case, said Mike McClain, WTVT's news director.
"We wish him a speedy recovery," McClain said. "Hope he's back on the air as soon as possible."
McClain wouldn't discuss Johnson's condition, citing company policy. He didn't know when Johnson would return on the air.
Johnson started with Channel 13 in 1979. He is a graduate of Florida State University with a degree in meteorology.
