During a newscast Thursday, Dave Benton told viewers of WCIA-TV in Champaign that doctors recently told him that his brain tumor is too large for surgery or radiation.

He says he'll try a new treatment to slow the tumor's growth, but that his goal is to add "a few more days and make them the best they can be."

Benton has a wife and two adult children. He grew up in Addison, a Chicago suburb, and graduated from Northern Illinois University.

Benton's online biography says he has worked at the station for nine years.


In a strikingly frank on-air revelation, News Anchor, "Dave Benton" reveals to his viewers that his prognosis from his doctors was not good at all.

He had been suffering from brain cancer which was overcome a while back, but a new tumor, due to size and aggressiveness leaves him with a sad and heartbreaking ending.

He displays an uncanny calmness and acceptance, while speaking about it on air.
