Anchors Have Trouble Keeping It Together After Story About Boy With Brain Cancer

By Kevin Eck 

WKRC morning anchors John Lomax and Sheila Gray showed their human side after a story about a kid who was diagnosed with brain cancer ten days ago.

The story that would melt the coldest of hearts showed 10-year-old Kyler Bradley in his fifth grade classroom trying to maintain a regular life despite the changes brought on by the highly aggressive brain tumor.

“In my nearly 20 years of TV news, I’ve never seen anchors react to a story like this,” wrote meteorologist John Gumm on Facebook. “It got all of us. It’s certainly worth a couple minutes of your time. Hug your kids extra tight before they head off to school this morning.”


Both Lomax and Gray were so overcome, they couldn’t make it through the tag and had to send it over to the traffic reporter.
