Analysis of the midterm elections dominated news/talk stations across the country Tuesday, but one prominent host had something much more important on his mind. 

During a segment in the second hour of his show, syndicated host Erick Erickson paused and abruptly changed his monologue from analyzing midterm strategy to talking about his wife’s terminal cancer. 

“Let me talk with you, not at you,” Erickson suddenly said, shifting his inflection. “I am getting overwhelmed with emails, phone calls, and text messages. Let me just say, I don’t know about my wife’s scans.” 

Last year, Erickson wrote in the Northern Virginia Daily, that his wife was battling stage 4 lung cancer. Tuesday, he revealed to his audience a possible turning point in her treatment. 

“My wife takes a pill every day, it serves as a type of chemo, it’s not real chemo, she has very weird reactions to it,” Erickson said. “This pill as I understand it, my wife’s cancer thrives on a protein that it makes proteins that it shouldn’t make and these tumors form all over her lungs.” 

Erickson said the pill that his wife is taking stops the tumors from forming in her body but at some point, the pill will stop working. 

“This pill works for two years, we are six years in,” he explained. “And the pill is still working. We don’t know when it will stop. In the first two years, we really didn’t have a lot of anxiety because the pill works for two years.” 

Erickson told his audience that his stress levels were “through the roof” waiting to hear what the outcome of his wife’s visit to her doctor revealed. 

“As soon as I know, I’ll let you know,” he added.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.
