Bill Handel's Surgery Successful
March 18, 2011 at 5:48 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS AMGELES morning man and PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS "HANDEL ON THE LAW" host BILL HANDEL's open heart surgery was successful, PD ROBIN BERTOLUCCI told the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER's GARY LYCAN. HANDEL had surgery TODAY to replace an aortic valve with a pig's valve, and his wife MARJORIE called the surgery "textbook perfect" in a call to BERTOLUCCI.
While HANDEL recovers, his crew -- producer MICHELLE KUBE, sports anchor RICH MAROTTA, and news anchor GARY HOFFMANN -- will handle 5-6a and will be joined by midday host BILL CARROLL, pulling double duty, for 6-9a.
