Marc Lamarre and Jamey Singleton
Damn. It must be the weather.
Not one, but two WSLS (Channel 10) meteorologists — Marc Lamarre and Jamey Singleton — have struggled with a heroin addiction in recent months, according to an interview with Singleton that aired on WSLS’s late-night newscast Friday.
"Anyone can fall into this," Singleton said. "It’s hard, it’s a disease and it’s been rough."
Singleton said he has undergone therapy for his dependency and feels as if he has conquered it for the most part.
"You never recover, I don’t think," he said, "but I’ve put the beast to sleep, so to speak."
Singleton said the toughest part of his ordeal was finding out that his friend and neighbor, Lamarre, 36, suffered a near-fatal heroin overdose on the evening of Feb. 2. Lamarre is recovering, according to WSLS, but he is no longer employed with the station.
