Local talk show host Trav Ruppert of WJEJ radio in Hagerstown, who has been off the air since Dec. 26, is hospitalized in fair condition, according to station owner/manager John Staub.
Staub said he didn't know when Ruppert would return to work. He would not comment on Ruppert's illness.
"He is receiving treatment, and that's all I can say about it," he said.
Staub said he has been filling in for Ruppert on his afternoon call-in talk show, while Cheryl Plummer has been handling the DJ slot.
