Montel speaks

Taken directly from the Montel Williams MS Foundation site:

Dear Friends,

Thank you for all the calls, emails and demonstrations of support you have sent my way since the announcement that CBS and The Montel Williams Show is coming to a parting of ways after this, our 17th season on the air.

Please know that there is nothing sinister behind this development. CBS did not decide to stop distributing the show because I have MS, nor did that corporation “cancel” the show because of any statements I may have made.

And perhaps most important of all, The Montel Williams MS Foundation is an independently run 501 (C-3) non-profit that is not subject to the scheduling decisions of CBS, a for-profit company.

So thanks again for your enthusiastic support for me and the Foundation, and I look forward to working with you to defeat multiple sclerosis.



If I read between the lines, he's not happy about it.

Hi Carole: This subject is all the buzz in my state of Pennsylvania as well as on several blogs.

I don't think he's happy about it either.

He was on Good Morning America this morning (Monday) and something just doesn't ring true about it. Just my opinion. LOL

Hi! Anne
I'll have to look around and see what others think
Was it his politics or his fear of
MS ?

LOL, interesting. I've done a couple and Lisa Emrich added several links to a comment on my last post re Monty.
