November 21, 2008 at 5:32 AM (PT)
Get well wishes go out to CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WCKY-A (1530 HOMER, THE SPORTS ANIMAL)/CINCINNATI afternoon host LANCE MCALISTER, who is in the hospital getting a pacemaker and defibrillator installed for his heart TODAY (11/21).
MCALLISTER has been reporting on his progress on his blog at the station's LOT D website, describing how he went to have chest pains looked at and ended up fainting and flatlining for 60 seconds in the emergency room, and noting that doctors say his heart is strong but the new equipment is meant to guard against another heart stoppage when he faints.
NICK BRUNKER has been filling in for MCALISTER, and midday host MO EGGER will host FRIDAY's "BENGALS BREAKDOWN" show in MCALISTER's absence.
