NEIL Cavuto said that he was hospitalized with Covid Pneumonia as he returned to Fox News on Monday.
Concern was sparked after viewers noticed that Cavuto had not appeared on the channel recently.
He hosts three programs across the Fox Network, Your World with Neil Cavuto, Cavuto Live – both on Fox News – and Cavuto: Coast to Coast on the sister channel Fox Business Network.
Despite his busy schedule, Cavuto has been missing from all of his Fox Network shows for the past several weeks.
The news anchor last hosted Cavuto: Coast to Coast on January 11, as the show has since seen a string of guests hosts.
On January 17, Payne tweeted he’ll be hosting Your World with Neil Cavuto.
America Reports co-anchor Smith hosted the program on January 20 and 21.
Payne returned as a guest host of the program the following week.
Fox News declined to comment when approached by The US Sun concerning Cavuto’s status.
Despite his absence, Cavuto’s official Twitter account has continued to announce guest hosts and update his show’s latest episodes.
The Fox host has been dealing with health concerns for most of his career.
In 1987, Cavuto was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma – a type of cancer that attacks the body’s immune system.
He was diagnosed just a few years into his career after graduating from St. Bonaventure University with a degree in mass communication in 1980.
He received radiation and chemotherapy, but the television personality began experiencing worrying symptoms again ten years later.
“I was stumbling and falling,” the Fox News anchor remembered of the summer of 1997, as he explained to People in 2002.
“I would wake up prickly. My legs felt like stilts.”
But the symptoms were not actually due to the lymphoma. Instead, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative neurological disease.
“For three or four days, I was silent,” he told People.
“I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I was very angry at the world. What the hell did I do? Was I a Nazi stormtrooper in a prior life?”
