WCCO Minnesota afternoon co-host Jordana Green revealed on her Caring Bridge page that her cancer is back, one week after informing the public she was in the remission stage of her battle.

“Last night was one of the worst nights of my life. I had to tell my kids my cancer has returned. I’m sorry. I feel like I’ve failed you and them and me,” Green wrote. 

The WCCO radio host said it was only one week ago that she posted the e-mail from her doctor stating her continued remission. Green adds she now has to have a bone marrow transplant.

“But those were results from blood work done at Mayo, it was before the MRD results came back. MRD is Minimal Residual Disease. A lab at the University of Washington (Seattle) looks at your bone marrow on a molecular level, and it found .011% of T Cell ALL in my blood. We repeated the bone marrow biopsy this past Friday and it showed .0036% of disease. My doctor says any trace is a remission. I’m so sorry.

“I will be admitted to Mayo to begin chemo; they have to get me back into full remission before a BMT. I will do at least two rounds of chemo (about 4-6 weeks each) before BMT.”

Two years ago, Green’s doctor’s found her a donor from a man in Germany, and they are now contacting him to see if he remains willing to donate. Furthermore, they’ll also see if he’s healthy enough for a procedure. If not, the team will have to find someone else that’s compatable.

“My greatest risk for the next few months as they dismantle my immune system will be infections, so if we had dinner plans or a trip or anything, I will have to cancel,” Green said. 

“I wont lose my hair again until BMT so I may dye it platinum. The kids will still go to NJ for Passover but Marc and I will zoom their Seder. We will have to move back to Rochester for the transplant in a few months.”

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
