Chris Duncan leaves radio role to focus on his battle with brain cancer

Chris Duncan, the Cardinals’ slugger who found his swing with a championship team and later his voice with a local sports radio station, has taken a permanent leave from his on-air role to focus on his ongoing battle against brain cancer.

Duncan will step aside from the show he co-hosted, “The Turn,” in order to “focus on health,” WXOS (101.1 FM) announced Monday afternoon.

“If you pray, please keep him in your prayers,” a tweet from the station said. “If you don’t, keep him in your thoughts.”

When Dave Duncan left the Cardinals it was to help care for his wife, who had brain cancer and subsequently died. And now his son has it. How awful.
