Some good news to report from Charlotte…
WBTV Reporter Steve Crump finally returned to work after a 9-month medial leave of absence due to a battle with colon cancer.
Yesterday, Crump walked back into the WBTV newsroom to the cheers and applause of the entire staff.
The longtime Reporter has been on leave since June 2018, after being diagnosed with colon cancer. A surgical procedure to remove the cancer led to a serious MRSA infection, which caused him to be in the hospital for 51 days. For a time, he was on dialysis, breathing through a ventilator and using feeding tubes.
Great to see him back in the newsroom and back in the game.
It was an emotional return back to work.
