KHOU-TV CBS 11 Sports Director Bob Allen has cancer & has taken an extended leave of absence as he battles the disease.


The station released a press release regarding Allen's cancer fight: "Our friend & colleague, Bob Allen shares with us that he's been diagnosed with cancer. It's a form of T-Cell Lymphoma & Bob is very encouraged about his chances for recovery.


When he talks about facing this challenge, Bob displays the same confidence & optimism Houston television viewers have come to expect from him over the past four decades as the city's leading sports anchor.


"I'm ready for this----& I'll beat it,'" Bob says, adding that he appreciates the support & kind words coming his way.


During his treatment, Bob will be taking an extended leave from his on-air work at KHOU so he can focus all his energy  & attention on getting well. He'll keep us posted & we'll make sure all the people who know him, trust him, & care about him have the latest word on how he's doing.


You can share your thoughts with Bob on KHOU.com & on our Twitter & Facebook pages, using the hashtag, #GETWELLBOB."


Allen's been a fixture in Houston's sports scene since the 1970s when he joined KTRK-TV Ch. 13 (ABC) before leaving in 2013 & later going across the street to rival station, KHOU-TV CBS 11, where he's been ever since!




Please send your prayers & thoughts to Bob!
