A local anchor in Central Illinois has told viewers that he has only months to live, reports UPI.

The story says that WCIA-TV anchor Dave Benton, 51, “was diagnosed with glioblastoma last November and said it was then treatable as it had pushed on his brain but didn’t penetrate it. He said he was in remission for six months before it returned and is now inoperable. Doctors give him four to six months to live.”

WCIA is a Nexstar CBS affiliate serving the markets of Champaign, Springfield, Decatur and Urbana, Illinois.
