Seeing a lot of requests for prayers and otherwise for Tunch. No public statement from the family, but this is an interview with him. At 1:45 in, Tunch says he has been diagnosed with ALS.

Just in case anyone doesn't know: Tunch Ilkin was an O-Lineman for the Steelers in the 80's, and currently serves as the Steelers Radio Network color announcer.

I really hate hearing this. I'm a big fan of his coverage on SNR and Steelers games.

Sad. I was watching a video he was in the other day thinking he didn't look well.

a heck of lineman back in his playing days and a great Steelers guy hate to hear the news of his ill health.

Pulling for him. Awful news. I wish him nothing but the best in his battle.
