Get well wishes go out to 612 ABC/BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA 11a-noon "CONVERSATIONS" and 1-3p "AFTERNOONS" host RICHARD FIDLER, who has landed in the hospital with severe burns on his hands and arms from what he called a "cooking misadventure."
The BRISBANE TIMES reports that FIDLER, who had recently returned to work after a six-week overseas stint on a CHURCHILL Fellowship, will undergo skin graft surgery later this week and will likely be off the air for another three weeks. CHRIS WELSH, who has been filling in for FIDLER, will continue to do so while FIDLER recovers.
