The attack came on mid-afternoon during his radio show. The controversial commentator began complaining on the air that he wasn’t feeling well and shortly after left his co-host, Pat Grey, to finish the program. Beck was taken by car to an unnamed Manhattan hospital where he underwent an appendectomy.
Christopher Balfe, the president of Mercury Radio where Beck’s program airs, joked that “before going under, Glenn asked the doctor to draw out the surgery procedure on a blackboard.” A source said that he was expected to be off the air for the rest of the week. Judge Andrew Napolitano filled in on Beck’s TV show last night.
