Gerry House Hospitalized

WSIX/Nashville morning host Gerry House was in the intensive care unit of a Nashville hospital Monday (Aug. 18) after being diagnosed with a bleeding artery in his brain. House was hospitalized late Friday afternoon (Aug. 15) after complaining of a severe headache. He underwent surgery to repair the bleeding artery. Additional surgery took place Sunday afternoon to relieve fluid and swelling on his brain. Although WSIX officials describe it as “a very serious situation,” they add that doctors expect him to make a full recovery. House, consistently one of the top-rated radio personalities in Nashville, has won numerous awards from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, Billboard and Radio & Records. As a songwriter, House’s credits include Reba McEntire’s “Little Rock,” George Strait’s “The Big One” and Pam Tillis’ “The River and the Highway.” 08/18/03
