Chicago Radio: Eric Ferguson From The Mix Undergoes Surgery

Eric Ferguson
Eric Ferguson is scheduled to undergo elective surgery on his spine Friday to relieve numbness in his arms and hands, according Chicago Media Blogster Robert Feder.

The 46-year-old Ferguson, one-half of the top-rated morning team of Eric & Kathy on WTMX FM 101.9 FM said he’d been putting off the procedure for years. “It’s just gotten to a point from a comfort level that I want to get it done and get it over with,” he told me Thursday.

The surgery to correct spinal stenosis will involve removal of a disk and fusion of vertebrae to relieve pressure on the spinal cord.

How soon he’ll return to his show on the Hubbard Broadcasting hot adult-contemporary station “just kind of depends on how I feel over the weekend,” he said.

According to the latest Nielsen Audio survey, Ferguson and partner Kathy Hart dominate morning listenership among adults between 25 and 54 with a commanding 10.2 percent share — double their next closest competitor. They’re in their 18th year together on the Mix.
