MILWAUKEE (WITI) β€” A local man who built a multimedia empire from the ground up is now broadcasting the benefits of a relatively new cancer treatment.

For more than 50 years, Vic Eliason has been a driving force behind VCY America, a television and radio empire offering around-the-clock Christian programming to stations across the country and on the internet.

β€œIn 1959 we came here to Milwaukee to work with teenagers and it was teenagers that came up with the idea of starting a Christian radio program and that radio program developed into what we have today,” explained Eliason.

Eliason spoke with FOX6 to give a message of hope about a revolutionary cancer treatment that helped with two tumors growing on his liver after his prostate cancer spread.
