KFI Radio Host Mark Thompson Health Scare

KFI radio host, Mark Thompson announced on-air that he’s will miss tomorrow’s broadcast to undergo medical tests related to a problem with his esophagus.



Thompson, appearing on his new KFI radio show, Thompson & Espinosa, said he will undergo an esophagogastroduodenoscopy, a procedure that allows doctors to view the esophagus via a small camera lowered into the throat.

Thompson, speaking to his cohost, Elizabeth Espinosa, said he thought he was catching a cold when he started experiencing pain in the area of his esophagus. The associated pain has prevented him from eating solid food for over a week, said Thompson.

Mark has hosted high profile “event” shows like Celebrity Daredevils Live (FOX) with Dennis Rodman and Angie Everhart, all the Robbie Knievel jumps since 1990 (building to building in Las Vegas, over a portion of the Grand Canyon, and over an oncoming train). He even was hosting a live Knievel jump during which the weather prevented the jump and Thompson was asked to “fill” for the entire hour. There was no jump and the show registered a 25 share.

Speedy recovery Mark!
