Former TNA & IMPACT Announcer Don West Reveals Brain Lymphoma Diagnosis

Best wishes to Don West as he undergoes treatment

Former TNA and IMPACT announcer Don West has sadly revealed that he has been diagnosed with a brain lymphoma.

West made the announcement on Sunday, confirming that he would undergo treatment immediately and admitting the diagnosis was the reason behind his absence from his daily radio show.

West worked in TNA for ten years from 2002 to 2012, and is best known as the colour commentator alongside Mike Tenay. He returned to the company in 2017 for Slammiversary XV.

In an open letter published to, West wrote: 

"Hello everybody,

Don West here to tell you about how disappointed I am not to be talking about the Seattle Seahawks, the Mariners, the Wenatchee Wild and everything else that we love to talk about every day on the Don West Show. 

Many of you have wondered where I have been and why the show is on hiatus.  So I want to share this news directly with you.  I have been diagnosed with a brain lymphoma and will begin immediate treatment. 

I want to thank my wife Terri for her love and support, my family and everyone that works at Cherry Creek Media and KPQ.  I also want to thank the Don West Show’s incredible sponsors and my friends for all the prayers that are coming my way. I am praying the chemotherapy will help me heal faster and hopefully I’ll be back on the radio soon.

I can’t wait until this is all over and I can be back with you all again, I love you all!

Don West"

Everybody at Cultaholic sends their best wishes to Don West as he undergoes treatment.
