Some news to share. I’m taking temporary medical leave from my radio show. I will share more when I know more. I am still working to receive a diagnosis.

Danny Bonaduce takes medical leave from his radio show to focus on his health
Given Bonaduce’s transparency with his life, political views, and battles with drug addiction over the decades, when he receives an update on his condition, we’re all likely to know. That said, the fact that he’s taking medical leave from his radio show indicates that it’s something to worry about for the television veteran.
While the disease and the severity of it are mysteries to followers and Danny Bonaduce himself, he was able to joke about using a cane a bit by following up the tweet above with the following:
“Charlie Chaplin, Willy Wonka, Danny Bonaduce. I joined the club of cool guys with canes.
Bonaduce, the son of a producer and writer on shows such as The Dick Van Dyke Show, would make his entertainment debut in the late 1960s. He appeared on popular shows of the time such as RFD Mayberry and Nice to meet you before landing his best-known role as Danny Partridge on The partridge family in 1970.
A popular character on the show for his four years, over the years many who have worked with Danny Bonaduce on different programs have noted his bad attitude behind the scenes.
Despite his previous attitude issues, Bonaduce always worked in television, except for a period in the late 1980s and early 1990s when his substance abuse issues led to a few arrests. These problems not only slowed his work in television, but also in radio, although he usually managed to find a position with another station.
Younger fans might remember Danny Bonaduce for some of his work in the 2000s. He had a few guest appearances as Ricky on That 70s show, CSI as Izzy Delancey, and a match on IMPACT Wrestling’s first weekly pay-per-view. He was also a regular cast member on the only season of Hulk Hogan Celebrity Championship Wrestling.
A longtime radio personality in addition to his acting endeavors, Bonaduce’s program Danny Bonaduce and Sharah’s Morning Show has been on Seattle’s KZOK since 2011.
