Michael Medved Calls In To Show With Update On His Recovery
April 9, 2015 at 12:59 PM (PT)
MICHAEL MEDVED called in to his SALEM RADIO NETWORK show TODAY (4/9), appearing for the first time in two months since he announced that he is being treated for stage 3 throat cancer.
MEDVED, saying that he is encouraged by the results of his radiation and chemotherapy treatment, noted that the recovery comes "at a cost," namely having to go through recovery to restore his speaking voice. "Before long, I will be back every day, every morning, doing what I love to do," he said, adding that he is ahead of schedule for recovery but that the remaining problems are centered in his mouth, causing problems for eating and speaking. He expressed his gratitude for the prayers and well wishes he has received since his diagnosis.
SRN VP/News and Talk Programming TOM TRADUP said, "I know I speak for everyone -- including MICHAEL’s listeners, his affiliates, and all of his colleagues on-and-off the air here at SRN when I say what a blessing it was to hear MICHAEL’s voice on the radio again today. Thank you for your continuing prayers and best wishes… and -- as MICHAEL himself stated -- we hope to have him back 'better… stronger than ever… and soon.'"
The show is being hosted by DAVID BOZE while MEDVED continues his recovery.
