Get-well wishes go out to CREATIVE MINISTRIES, INC. noncommercial Contemporary Christian WJTL/LANCASTER, PA personality LISA LANDIS, who has been hospitalized with the flesh-eating bacterial infection necrotizing fasciitis. The station says that LANDIS, who hosts the weekday morning show and SATURDAY morning "KIDS COOKIE BREAK," has been moved to the UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA's hospital for treatment and has undergone four surgeries for the condition.
The LANCASTER INTELLIGENCER-JOURNAL reports that LANDIS felt leg pain and mild "flu-like symptoms" over a week ago and the infection progressed rapidly.
