WJAC-TV anchor Marty Radovanic reveals cancer diagnosis

From CDT staff reportsJune 24, 2014 

Marty Radovanic, longtime WJAC news anchorman, announced on live television Tuesday that he has cancer.

But that won’t stop him from reporting the news for a long time, he said.

He told viewers he began receiving treatments last week for marginal zone non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

“Cancer picked the wrong guy to mess with,” Radovanic said.

He is WJAC’s managing editor. He also co-anchors the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts and is the main anchor for the 11 p.m. newscast Monday through Friday.

He classified his diagnosis as a “frightening, lonely moment,” but said he has a strong family, friends, work and community support system.

It’s “a little speed bump on the highway of life,” Radovanic said.

To keep the public updated on his fight against cancer, he said, he has started a blog on wjactv.com called “A little bump in the road.”
