Cable News Hosts and Fox News Colleagues Wish Neil Cavuto Well After Covid Diagnosis: ‘Prayers for Your Quick Recovery’


Fox News' Neil Cavuto

Fox News’ Neil Cavuto received an outpouring of well-wishes from network colleagues and other cable news personalities following his Covid-19 diagnosis.

Cavuto will be off the air as he recovers from the coronavirus, meaning Jackie DeAngelis will fill in for him on his Fox Business program Cavuto Coast to Coast, and Charles Payne will helm Your World on Fox News. Cavuto has openly discussed his battle with multiple sclerosis and other health problems over the last few years, and he released a statement on Tuesday urging people to get vaccinated:

While I’m somewhat stunned by this news, doctors tell me I’m lucky as well. Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation. It’s not, because I did and I’m surviving this because I did. I hope anyone and everyone gets that message loud and clear. Get vaccinated, for yourself and everyone around you. Everyone wins, except maybe my wife, who thought I was back in the city for good for live shows. Maybe not so fast now.

Cavuto’s Covid diagnosis prompted many of his Fox News colleagues to wish him well on social media:

Cavuto also received warm messages from cable news figures outside of Fox:

Not the least of his well-wishers was CNN’s John King who just made his own revelation that he suffers from multiple sclerosis. King told Oliver Darcy for CNN’s Reliable Sources newsletter that he counts Cavuto as one of his “heroes” and a “warrior.”

He said that Cavuto is someone he watches and admires. “I would just hope that everybody would remember Neil Cavuto, or a stranger on a bus or in a coffee shop, might be in a similar situation,” King said. “And there are things you can do to protect them.”

We at Mediaite also wish him well, and for a speedy recovery.
