LEXINGTON ANCHOR’S RETURN PUT ON HOLD

Nancy Cox, anchor for Cordillera’s WLEX in Lexington, KY was hoping to get back into the anchor chair in July, following her recovery time from a complicated back surgery this spring.

Scratch that.

While the operation was a success, the recovery is taking a little longer than expected.

“I’m ready to go back to work, mentally. I’m ready to feel like I have a purpose again. But I was beginning to feel a little bit of that pressure that I wasn’t going to be strong enough,” she said.

It’s now looking more like an August return to the station’s 5:30, 6 and 11pm shows.
