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.
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.
