Kel McWilliam breaks down on air about his chronic back pain and his mental health

Wednesday 29 January, 2020

Melbourne's 89.9LightFM Breakfast host of 7 years, Kel McWilliam, opened up last week about the toll chronic back pain was taking on his mental health, and how he's been unable to sit in the radio studio for the last few years, instead opting to kneel at the desk so he doesn't end up in hospital. 
 
The normally stoic Kel broke down on air whilst sharing the immense pain he's been in for years.


 
The station was inundated with thousands of calls, SMS, and messages of support for Kel, along with over 130 incredibly moving Facebook messages from listeners also struggling with chronic health issues.

Part of an amazing radio duo, that can have you laughing one moment then to tears with this vulnerability!
A Breakfast show that continues to grow a highly engaged community of listeners with integrity.
