LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Four words I hate to say on the air: Abner is off tonight, but I've been saying that for almost six weeks.
Abner is healing after successful surgery on Saturday. His pain is almost gone, and he is anxious to explain why he has been missing on the air for so many weeks.
So, this message is to you from Abner:
By the way, when I clipped the mic on Abner for that interview, somehow I clipped it onto his skin. Lucky or not, our photographer got his reaction on camera. Thank goodness, Abner's sense of humor is not injured.
You can see the mic attack on my KCBD Facebook page.
And we'll explain diverticulitis coming up on Healthwise on NewsChannel 11 at ten.
