Battling Cancer, Anchor Tom Campbell Returns to WRDW and Sits Down for an Interview

Anchor Tom Campbell has been on leave from WRDW as he battles cancer but he recently returned to the newsroom and sat down for an interview with fellow anchor Richard Rogers.

“Many of you have been asking about Tom since he disappeared from the airwaves a few months ago,” Rogers told viewers this week. “And while you miss him here [on TV], we miss having him here, in the newsroom.”

Campbell has been undergoing rounds of radiation and chemotherapy to fight tumors near his bile duct.

“I just feel energized and happy and thankful every time I come here,” Campbell told Rogers, fighting back tears. “This place has been a big part of my life for 16 years.”

WRDW has embedded a Facebook module on its website where viewers can share messages of support for Campbell.

“I had such a good time sitting down with Tom and writing this story,” Rogers shared on Facebook.  “It’s always great to have Tom Campbell back here where he belongs— on the air at News 12.”

Part 2 of the interview is available here.
