WCIA’s Dave Benton to undergo brain surgery

Just stumbled upon the news that WCIA’s newscaster Dave Benton is to undergo brain surgery to remove a tumor. From the WCIA Facebook page:

A message from Dave Benton…

You may have noticed I’ve been gone a few days and I wanted to let you know why. I’m scheduled to have brain surgery tomorrow. Doctors found a tumor and they’re taking it out. We will know more after that. I hope to be back to work after Thanksgiving.

I believe in the power of prayer. The more people sending some up for me the better.

Thanks for your support,


Our best wishes go out to Dave and his family during this time from us here at SP. Hoping for a speedy and full recovery.
