WYCD 99.5 FM PM Drive cohost Linda Lee has disclosed she has cancer.
Lee has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She also has a tumor and a spot on her lymph node. She started “aggressive” chemo Tuesday at Henry Ford Hospital in Downtown Detroit.
Linda posted a message stating that she wants everyone to STAY POSITIVE! She also wants every single person to NOT feel bad for her, as she says this is something so many people have gone through and a lot have survived.
This past July Lee celebrated her 20th year on WYCD, making her the longest consecutive female country music air personality in Detroit history.
Lee began her career at WYCD as a member of the morning show, and then later teamed up with co-host Chuck Edwards for the long running “Edwards & Lee” afternoon drive show. The pair were together on WYCD for 16 years, gathering many accolades along the way including the 2010 & 2015 Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) “Personality of the Year”, the 2014 Gracie Award for “Outstanding Morning/Afternoon Personality” and 2011 CMA for “Personalities of the Year”. When Edwards moved to mornings in late 2015, Lee teamed with Rob Stone for the “Rob & Linda” show.
