“Before we go tonight, Chris hasn’t been here the last few nights and he wanted to let you know why,” fill-in host Steve Kornacki said on the show. “Chris is recovering from prostate cancer surgery last week.”
“The procedure went well, but he’s taking a few days to get back into fighting shape,” he said. “I know he’s looking forward to getting back very soon.”
Mr. Mattews, 73, has been hosting “Hardball” for 25 years.
