Long time central Illinois Broadcaster, Bob Murray told listeners he is taking a leave of absence.

 

On Tuesday he revealed he is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer in an open letter. Murray, 66, stated in his letter " I have been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer and will be taking this leave from work as an opportunity to focus my time on getting better and being with family and loved ones. While this is far from an ideal situation, we are remaining positive and focusing on staying strong."

 

Murray has served with WTAX-AM since 2003, as the host of WTAX's morning NewsWatch. Before joining WTAX he was WAND's chief weathercaster from 1989 until 2001. He also spent time with WMAY before joining WAND and prior to joining WTAX.
