Radio veteran John Laws in hospital awaiting procedure
85-year-old radio veteran John Laws is in hospital with an infection and will undergo a procedure.
The news emerged this morning on Ben Fordham’s 2GB Breakfast show.
Fordham said he had known of Laws’ condition since the weekend, however had been asked to keep the news quiet.
In the wake of the death of John Brennan, however, journalists have been chasing Laws for comment, prompting the broadcaster to reveal his predicament.
Laws’ program goes to air 9am to 12pm on weekdays on 2SM, which refers to him as the “undisputed King of Talkback Radio”.
On his program this morning, Fordham sent his best wishes to the industry stalwart.
“Get well soon Lawsie, before you know it you’ll be back on your feet, hooning around Sydney, and sitting down to a Wild Turkey or two. Take your time with your recovery, rest up, and get well soon.” he said.
