Former Portland Anchor Loses Voice After Surgery

By Kevin Eck 


Retired KOIN anchor Mike Donahue is recovering from throat surgery that has left him struggling to speak.

His vocal chords were damaged during surgery and he’s not sure how long it will take to get his voice back.

“I’ll never take swallowing or speaking for granted again,” Donahue told the Portland CBS affiliate.

Donahue has been working for Providence Health since he retired from KOIN in May 2012.
