Doomsday Preacher Harold Camping's Radio Show Cancelled

Doomsday preacher Harold Camping, who is recovering from a mild stroke, will stop airing his Open Forum show at the end of this month.

Camping took questions live from listeners every weeknight on Family Radio's Open Forum program. Ever since the 89-year-old broadcaster suffered a stroke on June 9, Family Radio has been airing re-runs of his 90-minute program. Family Radio will air pre-recorded segments of the Open Forum program from Camping's May 23 to June 9 broadcasts to fill up the schedule until the end of June then wrap up the show, according to the Oakland Tribune.

"When those are completed, we will have other programming that is scheduled to run in that time slot," Family Radio's program department secretary Judi Rathbone wrote in an e-mail.

Camping, whose speech was reportedly affected by the stroke, was recently moved from a local hospital in the Oakland, Calif., area to a nursing facility to recover.
