HLN’s Howard Diagnosed With Cancer

howard_2-18.jpgThe Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Rodney Ho reports syndicated radio and HLN weekend daytime host Clark Howard has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Howard said the cancer was detected early. “There was no shock, no fear,” he said. “This isn’t what’s going to kill me. It’s probably going to be something like driving down 285 will kill me.”

An HLN spokesperson tells TVNewser: “Our first concern is for Clark’s welfare, and we support him and his family as they deal with this personal matter. We do not expect there to be any change to his HLN television schedule at this time.”

Howard’s HLN show launched on January 3.
