Bryant Gumbel revealed his battle with lung cancer today on Live with Regis & Kelly, where he is filling in as co-host. Gumbel explained that two months ago he had surgery which removed part of his lung along with a malignant tumor.
Based on his comments in this video, his battle seems to be behind him for the most part. Gumbel is 61 years old and has two children in ages 27 and 31. Gumbel has been known to smoke cigars but that has not been directly linked to his cancer. His condition was revealed after the bubbly Kelly Ripa asked him to dance and he told her he could not partake.
