A D.C. legend is stepping down from the anchor desk to get cancer treatment.

WUSA anchor Bruce Johnson announced his recent diagnosis on Facebook and on the air last week.

The 42 year veteran said he’s battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He will start chemotherapy treatment in the coming weeks.


According to his Facebook page, he plans to continue to update viewers during his treatment. He will be off air for an undetermined amount of time.
