The lowdown, (no pun), on Ronn Owens week-long absence on KGO: He has a bad back. How bad? Bad enough, according to a source, that required emergency medical care.
Doctors initially told Owens that he'd need surgery--now, a new diagnosis indicates he won't need it. He's due back on Monday.
The conspiracies can be put to rest. This isn't some sick-out a la Cumulus; at least nothing has come my way to indicate otherwise.
