Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has a brain tumor. She announced the serious condition on Twitter on Thursday.
McHenry — who is presently employed by Fox News — said that she will have surgery next week. She said she has a great medical team that she’s working with.
“I was trying to keep this relatively private,” McHenry said in a Twitter post. “But as usual, things are being said without my consent.
“I have a brain tumor. I’m with an amazing medical team and surgery is imminent. Thank you for continued support and understanding at this time.”
McHenry also hosts a show on WPGC on Friday nights called “Like It or Not” in Washington, D.C. she is also a political host on WTTG.
The reporter, who was born in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, began her career at WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C. and it’s sister station, NewsChannel8. She then transitioned to being the dugout reporter for the San Diego Padres.
She apparently didn’t like that experience, as she lasted just two weeks in San Diego, California. She then rejoined WJLA-TV, before leaving for ESPN in March 2014.
After more than three-years being at ESPN, she was fired in April 2017. She claimed in 2018 that she was fired because she was “too white and paid too much.”
