WWAY Anchor Donna Gregory Reveals Cancer Diagnosis

By Kevin Eck 

WWAY anchor Donna Gregory announced on Tuesday she is battling cancer.

“After months of trying to determine what was causing recurring coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue and weight loss, I underwent a biopsy April 1,” she told the Wilmington, N.C. ABC and CBS station. “The irony of scheduling an exploratory medical procedure on that date was not lost on me, but I had convinced myself I would not have to worry about an April Fool’s joke.”

Gregory, who joined the station in 2019, said she will be off the air for a while so she can undergo treatment.


“My plan is to get stronger and healthier each day, and prayers help, always,” she said.
