Former Salt Lake City Anchor Battles Cancer for Third Time

Dick Nourse, retired news anchor for Salt Lake City’s KSL, has recently been diagnosed with throat cancer.

“(My family’s) support, including that shown by members of my extended “TV family,” was key to my recovery during my first battles with cancer, and it is a great source of strength for me now,” Nourse said in a statement posted to the station’s website. “My wife, Deb, and I are extremely grateful. We know we’ll get through this.”

This is the third battle with cancer for the retired anchor who left the NBC affiliate in 2007. He overcame non-Hodgkins lymphoma in the early 1980s and later survived a bout with prostate cancer.
