Scott Springer back on WLW-AM
Good to hear Scott Springer back on WLW-AM this morning. The morning sports reporter had been off the air since Nov. 17, and some folks thought he was fired in Clear Channel's Nov. 29 purge. Not the case. He has been on disability leave since Thanksgiving, after a Botox shot gone wrong.
For the past year, he has received six to nine shots a quarter in his jaw and neck for oromandibular focal dystonia. The disorder causes jaw contractions, making it difficult to move the mouth or speak. That's not good for a Radio Guy. The Botox treatments had worked fine until November, when an injection into a jaw muscle partially paralyzed his palate. Welcome back.
