MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Undergoes Prostate Cancer Surgery


You may have noticed Chris Matthews has been off MSNBC’s air lately. According to the network, that’s because he recently had surgery to deal with a cancer diagnosis.

Steve Kornacki has been filling in for Matthews since the beginning of last week, and he explained why on Monday night as he closed out Hardball.

Before we go tonight, Chris hasn’t been here the last few nights and he wanted to let you know why. Chris is recovering from prostate cancer surgery last week. The procedure went well but he’s taking a few days to get back into fighting shape. I know he’s looking forward to getting back very soon.

It is currently not clear when Matthews will return.
