Get well soon Ali
Zetland FM sends Ali Brownlee our Best Wishes
MFC commentator Ali Brownlee faces a new challenge as this has been posted on the stations Facebook today
"We're sending our love and best wishes to BBC Tees Breakfast presenter and Boro commentator Ali Brownlee today.
Ali has been diagnosed with cancer of the lower bowel and starts his treatment very soon. Ali won't be on BBC Tees for a while, but we know our listeners will join us in wishing him well with his treatment, and welcoming him back whenever he is able to return.
Ali says "I am aware that I have to put all my efforts now into the fight I have ahead, but my inspiration will always be the hope to be back behind the mic yelling on The Boro and being with the best Breakfast Team on local radio".
Zetland FM wishes Ali and his family the very best.
