Eric Ferguson To Miss Some Time From WTMX Morning Show With Spine Surgery
November 22, 2013 at 6:00 AM (PT)
HUBBARD BROADCASTING Hot AC WTMX (101.9 THE MIX)/CHICAGO morning star ERIC FERGUSON, "will undergo elective surgery on his spine FRIDAY (11/22) to relieve numbness in his arms and hands," reports ROBERT FEDER, who notes "the surgery to correct spinal stenosis will involve removal of a disk and fusion of vertebrae to relieve pressure on the spinal cord."
“I don’t want people to worry too much,” FERGUSON told FEDER. “As far as spine surgeries go, this is considered an easy one -- although no spine surgery is easy, I guess. I’m actually anxious to get it done because I’d like to get the feeling in my hands and arms back to 100% and be able to enjoy myself over the holidays.”
There's no word on when he’ll return to his show.
