Neil Cavuto is expected to return to air on Sept. 6 after undergoing heart surgery earlier this summer, TheWrap has learned.

Cavuto will return to host both Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” and Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto.” His first day back on television will be his first day back at the office, where he is also a managing editor.

The 57-year-old has been off the air since May 31. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997, and also successfully battled cancer. Cavuto is extremely well-liked among colleagues and was recently given a shout-out by Donald Trump during a rally.

“Neil Cavuto had open heart surgery yesterday and came through it with flying colors,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to TheWrap back in June. “Knowing Neil, he’ll be back as soon as he can, but he is slated to return to hosting his three programs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network later this year. Everyone here is wishing him a speedy recovery.”

Along with on-air credentials that include hosting “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” “Cavuto on Business” and “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” he is the author of “More Than Money” and “Your Money or Your Life,” both of which were New York Times best sellers.

Cavuto currently lives with his wife and three children in Mendham, New Jersey.
