WIP's Big Daddy Graham Battling Cancer
March 22, 2010 at 8:00 AM (PT)
Get well wishes go out to CBS RADIO Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA overnight host and standup comedian BIG DADDY GRAHAM, who disclosed on the station's morning show TODAY that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. The cancer was discovered while GRAHAM (real name ED GUDONIS) was being prepared for back surgery in late FEBRUARY, when a lump blocked the insertion of a tube in his throat.
GRAHAM said that the cancer was caught early and will necessitate chemo and radiation but that he believes that he has a "real good chance ... of not dying." Treatment will start THURSDAY, and morning host ANGELO CATALDI, voicing support and confidence for his colleague, said that the cancer "is gonna be sorry it ever visited your body."
