BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) ESPN reporter Holly Rowe says she is undergoing surgery to remove a tumor.

Rowe had surgery in May to remove a tumor in her chest, and she said in a statement released by the network Tuesday that a new tumor had recently been found.

Rowe says she is having surgery Tuesday and ''in the coming days, I will know more about what potential additional steps I may take to address this situation.''

She thanks colleague Shelley Smith for her guidance after Smith went through her own cancer treatments. Rowe adds: ''I hope to be back at work soon doing what gives me so much joy in life.''

Rowe joined ESPN on a regular basis in 1998 and primarily covers college football, college basketball and softball.
