What happened to Don Burns? Is he ok?

You might have heard that Don was having some serious health issues. KCBI also announced the news in July 2021 saying he underwent heart surgery. This was not his first but second time undergoing the procedure. Burns had to have an ablation procedure in order to treat his AFib, a short form for atrial fibrillation.

If you are wondering how his surgery went, we’ve got some positive as well as negative news. The procedure was an overall success. However, there were some side effects too. According to Don’s wife, he suffered a lot of pain, and pain killers were not working. Later on, the pain meds finally kicked in and he became alright.

Why did Don Burns leave KCBI? Next job updates

We found out that Don’s reason behind leaving the KCBI is not because of his health condition. When the listeners asked the station about Don, they replied, “Thank you for asking and for being so caring. Don is no longer with KCBI and is pursuing other opportunities. We are so grateful for the time we had with him. We greatly appreciate your prayer for Don and for the ministry. Thank you!”

If he has left KCBI then he must have something planned for him. Currently, we don’t know his next move. But more than his next job, we are more concerned about his health now. There’s nothing more important than someone’s health. We hope for his speedy recovery and wish him all the best for his future ahead.

Don and Valerie have been very candid about their experiences. In the beginning, Don said he was a bit confused because he did not understand why God was letting this happen to them.
