Majic 100's Kevin Nelson is battling a severe liver illness

When Stuntman Stu and Angie Poirier took over as hosts of Majic 100's morning show, a lot of listeners were asking what happened to Kevin Nelson. He's been off the air for several months, and the only explanation from the radio station was that it was an extended sick leave.

The Ottawa Citizen reports today that Nelson has a severe liver problem caused by a virus he picked up on holiday last summer.  Nelson, who's been with Majic since it launched in 1991, hopes to return to the airwaves.  Here's the article.

    I just found out about Kevin being so sick I mean I knew he was sick ,but didn't realize how sick. Kevin I had been listening to you and Bill from day one when you came on the air with Majic over 20 years. My mornings just aren't the same without you and Bill and then Codi was an added bonus. There was no heads up about the morning show going South or all the changes that were coming to Majic.I know they wanted a younger crowd with Angie and Stu and yes they are doing a good job. For me there is to many changes at Majic and although change can be good it isn't always the best . I would prefer the Morning Show with Kevin,Bill and Codi back.Kevin I wish you a speedy recovery and wait to hear you back on the air some day soon. take care a loyal listener.

    You are missed and forever will be...had to switch stations when you, Bill & Codi went missing.
    May you rest in peace. Condolences to your family & friends.

  7. Kevin was the most interesting and fun radio host ever! I still remember his "bouquet of elbows" comment as will all the loyal listeners.
    Kevin will always be in our hearts as a wonderful person who brought a smile to our faces everyday!
    You are missed Kevin, rest in peace.
