Robert Channick - July 2022
Longtime Chicago broadcaster Lin Brehmer announced last week he is taking a leave of absence from his radio show. He has been working through various treatments for prostate cancer for several years now. Brehmer said in a statement on his Facebook page, "I have worked through various radiation treatments, biopsies, CT Scans, MRI’s and drug therapies. The cancer was caught early, treated early, but it has spread places one would rather it did not spread."
"Starting Monday I will begin a long period of chemotherapy. It is necessary for me to take a leave of absence from my radio show. I have the full support of my family and friends and WXRT to see me through my medical sabbatical."
