ALL ACCESS sends well-wishes to iHEARTMEDIA Country WUSY (US 101)/CHATTANOOGA afternoon co-host BILL "DEX" POINDEXTER, who continues to recover from an infection in his knee. DEX's children, CHRISTY, WILLIAM, and NICK have shared the following regarding DEX's health:
"Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us regarding our father's health. It is comforting to know that he is loved by so many. Unfortunately, after the first of the year, our dad came down with an infection in his knee brought on by gout. The infection was pretty severe and ended up requiring surgery. We then faced another setback when he had a reaction to the medication, which has resulted in more flare ups in other joints of his body. Hopefully with rest, the proper medication, and eventually some physical rehabilitation, we will get him up and running again. Figuratively speaking, of course, we all know dad doesn't really like to run. At this time, we don't have a time line as to when he will return back to the airwaves, but hopefully the DEX AND MO SHOW will reunite soon. Thanks to everyone for all the prayers and support; please keep them coming."
WUSY has set up a special webpage where friends and colleagues can leave well-wishes for DEX. "I know he will enjoy reading them," iHEARTMEDIA SVP/Programming GATOR HARRISON told ALL ACCESS, "so please send him a message." Visit the site and leave your best regards here.
