Tim Van Horn Set For Morning Show Return

Share This Article

Thank you Memphis Americans indoor soccer team for the get-well swag.

After taking two-weeks off to focus on recovery from surgery, I’ll return to The Mighty 990 on Monday.  I am looking forward to rejoining “Wake Up Memphis” from 6-9 a.m.


The road to full recovery from a total hip replacement remains a long one.  For now, it’s about patience and faithfulness to the prescribed rehab plan.  I haven’t been cleared to climb stairs or drive.  Although I can’t (logistically) work in-studio yet, I can (at least) deliver a morning show without pain or being under the influence of a painkiller.

Thankfully the Mighty 990 has the technology to make it happen.  Monday morning I will do something I haven’t done before- broadcast from my home.  I prefer to be in the Brim’s Snack Foods Studio, but that will have to wait for a few weeks.  Working from home won’t cure the cabin fever, but it does give me something to look forward to doing.  Also, I can push the walker over to the stove and make an omelet during a break.

Seriously, I can’t wait to be back with you on Monday.  We have some catching up to do.  We also have a ton of current events to talk about, and we’ll do just that.


Today has been a great day.  I got some great reading material from Mark Randall at The DeSoto Times-Tribune.  He sent me some Batman comic books.  It’s a perfect gift.  I’m not a comic book reader, but I’ve always wanted to get a couple to check out.  Thanks Mark!

The Memphis Americans indoor soccer team’s Co-Owner and President delivered some practice gear to my house to wear while I rehab.

As if today wasn’t great enough already , Chett Hopper came by for lunch and just to hang out.  We shot the breeze for a couple of hours on pretty much everything from world events to 80s wrestling.  Normally, I ice my hip and leg every day.  We laughed so hard today, I had to ice my abs.  Make sure in life you have at least one friend like Chett that makes you laugh that hard.  So glad he took a good bit of one of his days off to come by.

Have a great weekend!
