ALL ACCESS get-well wishes go out to LONDON-based U.S. talk host and commentator CHARLIE WOLF, who is undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his right kidney within the next two weeks. Doctors say that the cancer has not spread and the prognosis is very good for a full recovery. The former host at the UK's TALKSPORT and IRELAND's RED FM/CORK and ATLANTIC 252 and a personality on popular UK pirate station LASER 558, currently provides commentary on U.S. political issues to BBC RADIO TWO and FIVE LIVE and satellite/cable news networks BBC NEWS 24 and SKY NEWS.
"I am fortunate that doctors have found this in time and the outlook is very good," says WOLF. "Cancer can be a terrible disease for so many people -– In my case I am very lucky and for me, it may sound strange, but Cancer has been a very positive experience; almost 'liberating,' I have learned a lot about myself. It has also opened my eyes to the fact that cancer is not necessarily a death sentence. I’ve met many cancer survivors in the short time since my own diagnosis and have found there are some wonderful charities and organisations available to help those with cancer."
WOLF is taking JULY to recuperate and aims at a return to the air by AUGUST.
