Citytv news anchor has kidney cancer

Citytv news anchor Mark Dailey said Wednesday that he is battling cancer for a second time. Dailey made the announcement during the TV station’s 6 p.m. newscast.
Dailey said that he had been experiencing symptoms like weight loss, fatigue and night sweats for several weeks. After undergoing a CT scan, Dailey said that doctors found a tumour on his left kidney.
“The problem with kidney cancer, until you get symptoms which can be for 20 other things, it’s probably been there for a while. It’s hard to detect unless you have a CT scan,” he said during the newscast.
“It’s yet another cancer challenge for me.”
Dailey says that he will continue anchoring the 11 p.m. newscast before undergoing surgery in the next couple of weeks, after his daughter’s wedding.
The veteran broadcaster has been very public about his successful battle against prostate cancer, which he was diagnosed with several years ago.
Dailey began his career as a radio and television reporter in Ohio in 1968, and joining Citytv in 1979.
