ALL ACCESS thoughts go out to CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KTOK-A/OKLAHOMA CITY host MARK SHANNON, who is in the hospital battling leukemia.
NBC affiliate KFOR-TV reports that SHANNON is in INTEGRIS BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTER in OKLAHOMA CITY and that his chronic lymphocytic leukemia has "taken a turn for the worse," but that he is not giving up, even though he remarked, "Never planned my own funeral before, but it's interesting." At his website, SHANNON wrote, "I've had a life blessed beyond what I deserve, and I have few regrets. If my time here is up, then I am confident that God will prepare me, much as everything leading up to this point in my life has prepared me for the next step in life."
Friends and fans can send their well-wishes to MARK SHANNON, c/o KTOK, 1900 NW Expressway, Suite 1000, OKLAHOMA CITY, OK 73118.
