Hunt claimed that the tumor had been tiny, but it was unclear it was benign until the surgery. Which, I assume, was truly the hardest part, was knowing that there was something therein, growing, Hunt told People. To make sure that was all excellent information, Hunt told People. Once we learned that, then we needed to take some activity, since that was a really scary point to learn, Hunt stated in the interview.

You all are impressive and I really feel so touched by your poise, Hunt tweeted on Friday.

Search has been recouping after the exploration of the tumor, which doctors initially believed were migraine headaches. CNN made the official news in August that she would be signing up with the network as the first official anchor for the network's upcoming subscription streaming service CNN+, set to debut in the first quarter of next year. Hunt formerly was at NBC News and MSNBC, where she was support of Way Too Early.
