Matthews’ temporary replacement Steve Kornacki announced the news on Monday night’s episode of the politics talk show.
“Before we go tonight, Chris hasn’t been here the last few nights and he wanted to let you know why,” he explained. “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,” Kornacki added. “I know he’s looking forward to getting back very soon.”
