ESPN's Silverman in remission
Good news for Marc Silverman, afternoon co-host on Good Karma Brands ESPN sports/talk WMVP 1000-AM.
Six months after he disclosed his diagnosis for Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, Silverman now says the disease is in remission.
Calling it "the weirdest, craziest, hardest and most humbling spring/summer of my life," he tweeted to fans: "As my journey continues, thank you for making me #SilvyStrong!"
Silverman, 49, grew up in Skokie and graduated from Niles North High School and Southern Illinois University. He worked as a sports intern and reporter at news/talk WGN 720-AM before joining ESPN 1000 on its 1998 launch.
