2GB breakfast host Alan Jones has just announced at a press conference that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will be off the air
for the next few weeks for a few weeks when he has surgery, which is expected in a couple weeks.
More details shortly.
Update 12:33pm: I had to step away from the computer for most of the press conference, but I managed to record it anyway.

I suppose there’s not much to say, other than to wish Alan a speedy recovery. Best wishes Alan.
