KSFO's Rodgers Recovering From Pneumonia
February 9, 2009 at 5:44 AM (PT)
CITADEL Talk KSFO-A/SAN FRANCISCO host LEE RODGERS is off the air suffering from double pneumonia suffered after a recent listener cruise. RODGERS is recovering at home and is expected to make a full recovery.
Afternoon host BRIAN SUSSMAN is handling 5-9a PT in RODGERS' absence along with morning news anchor OFFICER VIC. SUSSMAN's 6-8p slot will be filled by a checkerboard of hosts all week, with weekender JOHN BATCHELOR on MONDAY, SUSSMAN doing double duty on TUESDAY, SALEM's MICHAEL MEDVED on WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY, and weekender BARBARA SIMPSON on FRIDAY.
Reports in other trades that RODGERS has left the station are false; SUSSMAN and VIC discussed RODGERS' ailment, described as "serious," on MONDAY's show and said RODGERS will be returning "in a couple of weeks."
