A Boston-area sports radio broadcaster has taken a leave of absence from his station in order to tend to the health of his wife and 5-day-old daughter, both of whom were injured during the baby’s birth last week. Glenn Ordway, 57, host of WEEI’s popular afternoon program known as the ‘Big Show,’ announced his decision in a written statement released by the station yesterday.
This past Thursday night, my wife Sarah gave birth to a baby girl that we named Mia Grace Ordway. Unfortunately there were complications in the final stages of the delivery. As a result of those complications our baby suffered a significant trauma injury. In the process, my wife Sarah also suffered an internal injury as a result of the childbirth.
Devoting his time to "nurturing Sarah back to health" will hopefully "allow the mother and baby bonding process to happen and subsequently increase baby Mia’s chances for a recovery," Glenn added.
