Some sad news was revealed this morning on Live! With Regis and Kelly as Bryant Gumbel revealed that he is being treated for lung cancer.
It might have stayed a secret for longer, except that nagging Kelly Ripa asked Gumbel to dance on the show. (He was filling in for Regis Philbin.) That's when Bryant explained he couldn't exert himself, due to the surgery last month to relieve a malignant tumor in his chest. On air, he confesses to Kelly:
"We had told a few people, we told my family, obviously. I even kept it from my staff at Real Sports. So I'm okay for the time being. I'm hoping they greenlight me to play golf again."
We'll keep our fingers crossed for you and we hope things get for you soon!
