Samuelsen took to the WXYT-FM airwaves last Monday to reveal he was battling colon cancer for the past 19 months.

“I was diagnosed with cancer January of ‘19, like so many men and women around here. Doesn’t make us unique or different or special, but it is certainly a massive gut punch for where you think your life is headed,” Samuelsen, who has been in and out of the hospital the last few weeks, said on the air Monday. “It throws you for a loop, it makes you reassess everything, it makes you hug your kids a little bit tighter, your family and friends a little bit tighter. It’s a battle, and the battle goes on.”
