Minnesota radio personality Jordana Green shocked her listeners Tuesday by revealing that she is battling a rare form of leukemia. Green who co-hosts the Paul and Jordana Show on Entercom’s WCCO began receiving chemotherapy this week.

Green told her audience that she knew something was wrong because she had not been feeling well for several months. “I noticed some large bruising on my legs but didn’t remember bumping myself. Tuesday, Oct 20, I went for some bloodwork.  That night my doctor called and said I needed to go to the ER as my platelets were low.”  

Green said she suffers from T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia – a rare form of leukemia that the Mayo Clinic describes as being the most common type of cancer in children, though it can also occur in adults. “Normal platelets are 150,000+, mine were 19,000. They admitted me, did a bone marrow biopsy and 12 hours later told me I had leukemia.”

Green moved to Minnesota from New Jersey in 2001 where she worked at Fox 29, which became UPN. In 2011, she started freelancing and a year later landed at WCCO. Her treatment process will keep her away from the station for a month. She said she plans to phone-in periodically when she is feeling well.

Green thanked her friends and family for their support. “I am truly humbled and grateful.”

Los Angeles radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou reacted Monday to a climate change article printed in the New York Times which describes a mega storm that could last for a month.

The KFI Radio hosts described the article written by Raymond Zhong as an “odd story.” 

“When I saw it on the front page of the actual printed paper, I was like we are being hit over the head with a drought,” said Chiampou. “Now you’re telling us that we’re going to drown?” 

Zhong wrote that a storm of this magnitude could cause more economic damage than a massive earthquake. 

Kobylt pointed out that the same report was published in the Los Angeles Times

“They (media) really go for these frightening stories so they can continue pushing their global warming obsession,” he added. 

The report states that the amount of rain predicted during this mega storm could test the levees, dams, and rivers in the state’s systems. 

John and Ken suggested that the New York Times may have received federal grant money to research this report. 

“From what I have read, if you’re doing climate research you aren’t allowed to research anything other than global warming, climate change disaster,” Kobylt said. “If you do any research that pushes back on what the cult says, then you are out of business.”

Pittsburgh radio personality Kevin Battle announced that Audacy-owned KDKA NewsRadio unexpectedly terminated his contract Tuesday. Battle shared the news on Facebook, stating that “evolving business situations” prompted the cut.

“It has been an absolute thrill and honor to be able to return to Pittsburgh to work at the legendary KDKA-AM/FM and with the professionals who make it sound great – especially our producer, Rob Graner,” Battle said.

Last year, Battle told Barrett News Media that he became involved in the news/talk format after a stint at a Baltimore sports station came to an end.

“I started selling motorcycles part-time and then I landed a part-time job at WNEW 99.1 FM in Washington D.C. After a year, somebody told me about a position in New York at Fox News Radio,” he said at the time.

A native Pittsburgher, Battle graduated from nearby Clarion University.

“I will be forever grateful to those of you who chose to tune in to the show each morning,” he said. “It really means so much to me that you spent your time listening and sharing your busy day with us. Thank YOU! I will miss you all.”

“He was last seen in Kern County, but his overturned SUV was found in north Los Angeles County off Lake Hughes Road near Castaic Lake.
