TAMPA (WFLA) — Tedd Webb, former co-host on WFLA-AM’s popular show AM Tampa Bay, is transitioning to hospice care, his son announced Tuesday.
Lee Ruiz said his father’s dialysis and dementia have become particularly taxing byproducts of his declining health and he’s “reached a point where he’s no longer able to continue the fight.”
Ruiz said that for the longest time, his father has kept pushing through it because he “didn’t want to cause pain for those who cared about him.”
Tedd retired in 2017 after over 50 years on Tampa Bay radio airways. He co-hosted AM Tampa Bay with Jack Harris from 1994 to 2017.
