Governor Jerry Brown ordered state flags to be flown at half-staff and issued the following statement in response to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut:
“We all mourn the heartbreaking loss of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary. We pray for their families and loved ones.”
Brown was Tuesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Last week, the Governor’s Office announced that Governor Brown is undergoing treatment for localized prostate cancer.
Dr. Eric Small, Brown’s oncologist at UCSF, issued the following statement:
“Fortunately, this is early stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy. The prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects.”
Governor Brown is continuing a full work schedule during the treatment, which is expected to be completed the week of January 7, 2013.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
