Glenn Beck is stepping away from his radio microphone after he was diagnosed with severe vocal cord strain caused by overuse, according to Peter Tripi, affiliate representative with Premiere Radio Networks.

The Glenn Beck Program airs from 9 a.m. to noon on 95.3 MNC.

Beck is under doctor’s orders to not speak for prolonged periods of time while his vocal cords recover. He is under medical supervision and therapy and is expected to fully recover later this month, Tripi said.

A recorded message from Beck was played during The Glenn Beck program on Monday, July 7, to tell his listeners of the change.

He is expected to return to hosting his radio and television programs on Aug. 3.

A selection of guests, including co-hosts Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray, will fill in for Beck during his absence.
