allan-harrisSince we posted about the story, there’s been an update to Allan Harris’ road to getting a healthy kidney. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Harris received a call that he would be receiving a kidney transplant. However, after several tests, the kidney was not healthy enough and Harris remains at the top of the waiting list.

According to the article from WBEN, Harris had been undergoing dialysis while also working a split shift to keep listeners updated on the latest road conditions. Harris, who also worked in Rochester in television and radio, came back to Buffalo in 2007 and has been with the station covering traffic duties during the week and Sunday morning news duties.

We’ve got Allan in our thoughts and he’ll return to the airwaves on Monday, December 5th.
