It’s rare for a broadcaster to step away from the public eye for thirty days and come back to a show in good shape. In fact, when the doctors told Glenn he had to walk away for thirty days he thought he would lose a lot of stations, listeners, and advertisers. Glenn took a few moments during today’s show to thank everyone for their support as he took care of his health.
"I'm glad to be back. Thank you so much. And I have to thank you the listener. Believe me, we watch the ratings carefully. And you the listener and also our sponsors, when the doctor told me, you know, take a month off. My first call was to the general manager of this program, and I said, so what's going to happen there? And he said, well, we'll probably lose a lot of stations. And we'll definitely lose a lot of clients. And we may lose a lot of listeners. I'm like, okay, that sounds fun. Let me pack my bags," Glenn said.
"We didn't lose any sponsors. We didn't lose any radio stations. And we didn't lose any listeners. I don't know how that last one happened with Pat and Stu," he joked. "But sincerely, thank you, Stu. And thank you, Pat. And all the other people that filled in."
"And thank you to the radio stations who held on to this show. It's my understanding that this has never happened before. It's happened with Rush, where nobody left. But that was kind of a really special circumstance, and Rush is Rush. We expected to lose a lot of stations, and we didn't. And we are very, very grateful. Thank you very much."
