Gray Talks About Cancer


Though he says it had nothing to do with his recent retirement(talks had begun before he got the news) former WTIC sports reporter Scott Gray has revealed he recently underwent treatment for prostate cancer.

Gray broke the news in a column in the West Hartford Press(You can read it here in Flipbook format). He underwent surgery less than a week after his final broadcast on the Ray Dunaway show. In the article Gray talks about his extended support group which includes former UCONN basketball coach Jim Calhoun.

“I owe my life to so many people who were part of the process, my wife not the least of them. I said to her at one point, “I remember when I was a kid, back in the ’50’s. Just the word ‘cancer’ was a death sentence.”

“It’s not so today. The odds of beating it increase every day. Information is the key. You hold the key to that information. Don’t take your health lightly. Get your annual physical. If you’re worried about the cost or inconvenience, think about the alternative.”

Gray says all his post operative tests have come back with good results, but regular testing will now be part of his health routine.

Debate Drama

Just when it seemed the gubernatorial debates were growing routine some drama bubbled up at NBC CT last night. The West Hartford-based station set out three chairs in the event that Republican candidate Tom Foley decided to show up, though he had indicated he would not. Soon came word that Foley was a few miles away at WFSB in Rocky Hill taping this Sunday’s edition of “Face the State”.  That raised eyebrows and had the assemblage of reporters and NBC CT staffers questioning the wisdom of Foley’s decision. During the hour-long debate, featuring only Malloy and Visconti, Moderator Gerry Brooks reminded television viewers five times that Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley declined to attend the debate.

Had a blast asking questions with Gerry Brooks and Max Reiss at tonight's NBC Connecticut gubernatorial forum!! What a nice crew. Thank you for making me feel so welcome!
