Premiere Radio Networks host and FOX News Channel personality Glenn Beck unexpectedly left his national radio show early today, saying he was not feeling well. Regular show contributor and longtime Beck associate Pat Gray stepped in to finish the last couple of hours of the show and NTS MediaOnline Today has since learned that Beck suffered an appendicitis attack. Christopher Balfe, President of Mercury Radio Arts, Beck’s production company, confirmed that Beck is having his appendix removed today at an undisclosed hospital. “Before going under Glenn asked the doctor to draw out the surgery procedure on a blackboard,” joked Balfe. Beck is expected to make a full recovery and return to both his radio and TV shows soon.
