Longtime WJAC (Johnstown, PA) Anchor Marty Radovanic told viewers during last night's newscast that he has cancer.
He told viewers he began receiving treatments last week for marginal zone non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
“Cancer picked the wrong guy to mess with,” Radovanic said.
He is WJAC’s managing editor. He also co-anchors the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts and is the main anchor for the 11 p.m. newscast Monday through Friday.
He classified his diagnosis as a “frightening, lonely moment,” but said he has a strong family, friends, work and community support system.
It’s “a little speed bump on the highway of life,” Radovanic said.
