Tough news this morning: Altitude revealed that longtime Avalanche TV color analyst Peter McNab has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment. But, McNab will continue on in his role he’s occupied for the last 26 years.
“Like so many others who have received news of this nature, this is a very personal battle. I’m fortunate that I received an early diagnosis and have great medical care,” McNab said in a statement “I will return on-air in the coming days while undergoing treatment. Over the next several weeks, I may need to miss a few games, but I look forward to covering the Colorado Avalanche through another exciting season.”
“Peter made it clear to us that he wanted to share his diagnosis with our fans, and we want to support that decision,” said Matt Hutchings KSE COO. “He believes that in doing so, he might be able to help those in similar battles, who might otherwise feel alone.”
McNab, 69, will be behind the mic for an Oct. 5 preseason game. Let’s all wish Peter, a very kind and gracious man, all the best.
