Radio show host to return
August 4, 2000 - St. Petersburg Times

BJ Harris, half of the MJ & BJ Morning Show on WFLZ-FM 93.3, was recently treated for esophagitis and will be back on the air Monday. The rest of the WFLZ morning crew is on vacation this week and also will return Monday.

"It's clearing up, but it's something I've had for a long time," Harris said. "It felt like I swallowed a tennis ball, and it wouldn't go down or come up."

After medication, a liquid diet and rest, the radio personality and station staff say he's back to his full potential.

"Even though he was on the air a little bit from home by telephone, you could tell his throat was sore," said Dave Reinhart, general manager of WFLZ. "He was in the station Monday, and his voice was almost back to normal."

In the latest Arbitron ratings The MJ & BJ Morning Show was the No. 1 morning program in the Tampa Bay area.
