VIPER COMMUNICATIONS Talk KRMS-A-K248BP/OSAGE BEACH, MO "OZARKS TODAY" host JOHN ROGGER saved the life of a guest scheduled to appear on his show on TUESDAY (7/10).
ROGGER tells ALL ACCESS that he called the guest, author JUNE SPIRES BARNHART, on the wrong day, MONDAY, and when he reached her, she was "saying random things and eventually (hung) up on me." Alarmed, ROGGER called her publicist, who has BARNHART's sister check on her, whereupon she discovered that BARNHART, 84 and a diabetic (who had written a book about diabetes), was in poor condition, having become confused and turning the heat up to 95 degrees when she meant to turn up the air conditioner. The author was rushed to the hospital, where she is recovering.
