Thoughts And Prayers For Les Acree

ALL ACCESS sends thoughts and prayers to longtime programmer and COUNTRY RADIO HALL OF FAME member LES ACREE, who suffered a serious stroke YESTERDAY (8/24), which has left him unconscious and on a breathing machine.
ACREE’s son, RYAN posted on the "Friends Of LES ACREE" FACEBOOK page this morning, “There is no treatment and the doctors and nurses are giving him the best comfort care. The doctors are keeping him on the ventilator only long enough for family and friends to visit and say their goodbyes. He is at VANDERBILT Hospital, room 6642 in the Critical Care Tower.
ACREE had a massive stroke in 2007 (NET NEWS 04/16/07) that disabled his speech and motor functions. He was recently moved to a care facility in NASHVILLE.
WIVK/KNOXVILLE, WKDF/NASHVILLE, WNOE/NEW ORLEANS, KRMD/SHREVEPORT and WGKX/MEMPHIS are among the many stops in ACREE’s radio career. In addition to his 2007 COUNTRY RADIO HALL OF FAME induction, ACREE was honored by the TENNESSEE RADIO HALL OF FAME 2013.
