Barrett Tryon Cancer Diagnosis

Post by gotigers » Thu Feb 06, 2020 1:59 pm

WILX morning anchor Barrett Tryon announced the reason for his lack of a tie lately is due to skin cancer on his neck. He announced his diagnosis yesterday on Facebook and today on air.

Sounds like they caught it early and the prognosis is good. Our prayers are with him!

WILX has “parted ways” with Barrett. How low can Channel 10 go than to lay off someone after battling cancer?

True, however MSU had a banner crop of shitty talent ready to work for $18,000/year. They had no choice.

They always have options. Choosing the bad option in the name of “business” doesn’t absolve them of doing what’s right for their employees.
