ECU football and basketball announcer Jeff Charles had more surgery Thursday in his fight against cancer.

According to Pirate Radio 1250, the Voice of the Pirates had surgery yesterday to reconnect his colon, repair a hernia and get rid of his skin graft.
     
Doctors are calling it a success.

Charles is in recovery and is expected to remain in the hospital for a week or so.

He hopes to be back at work in time to broadcast ECU's season opening football game Aug. 31.
