WIP's Angelo Cataldi to undergo surgery for diverticulitis

Best wishes to 94 WIP morning host Angelo Cataldi who will undergo surgery for diverticulitis Thursday at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees.

Cataldi was off air Monday and doctors have advised he stay out of work for three weeks, Cataldi’s wife Gail told us Monday afternoon.

“He’s such an embellisher so I don’t think people took this serious but he was really sick,” Gail said of Cataldi’s bout with the digestive disease that affects the bowels.

She doubts her husband will listen to his doctors and stay out of work for three weeks, but Gail said she will encourage him to get all the rest he needs.
