Long time KRVN announcer Dave Thorell had been off the air for weeks and faithful listeners couldn't be happier to hear his familiar voice.
Thorell was diagnosed with a rare form of Chronic Leukemia in June, and though it's been a tough road, he has says he has much to be thankful for.
"I'm coming along very well now, that's thanks to God. That's thanks to prayer and a wife who handles pill and shots, and my son who says you've got to be reading your news to get your voice back. Hundreds of cards from listeners saying they're praying."
This September marks his thirty-ninth year on the air with KRVN and although his return is gradual while he continues treatment, he plans to get back to his regular hours.
