WFMZ Anchor Rob Vaughn to Undergo Cancer Treatment

By Kevin Eck 

Longtime WFMZ anchor Rob Vaughn said he is stepping away from the desk to undergo prostate cancer surgery.

“I’ll be off work for a little while – not sure how long,” Vaughn announced on social media. “It’s an unexpected medical adventure: prostate cancer surgery.”

Vaughn has been an anchor at the Allentown, Pennsylvania station for more than 30 years. He joined the station in 1987 after anchoring radio news in Philadelphia and in Washington D.C.


“So – just a heads-up so you won’t be wondering why I’m not here for a little bit,” added Vaughn. “It may be a couple of weeks, or maybe a little more.”
