Ed Schultz Shares That His Wife, Wendy, Is Battling Ovarian Cancer

MSNBC host Ed Schultz announced today that is wife, Wendy, is battling ovarian cancer.

From The Brad Blog:

In the past hour, I was a guest on his radio show which is being guest hosted this week by Mike Papantonio of Ring Of Fire. Afterwards, the MSNBC prime time TV and radio host called in to the show to make the teary announcement and offer an update on his wife Wendy, who, he says, is just out of surgery, and will soon be recovering at home, after learning just last Wednesday about her illness.

Schultz said her fight to recover would take a while, so his radio and TV shows were, understandably, not at the front of his mind right now.

As someone whose family has been greatly impacted by ovarian cancer, I want to wish Wendy a full and very speedy recovery. (Stay tough!) And I think I can speak on behalf of all of us here at Mediaite when I say we’re keeping Schultz and his loved ones in our thoughts as they go through this difficult time.

Here is Schultz sharing news of his wife’s battle on a call to his radio program:
