ANDERSON, S.C. (FOX Carolina) -- T.L. Hanna legend James "Radio" Kennedy is home after a trip to the hospital, according to former T.L. Hanna High School football coach Harold Jones. 

Jones said he went to pick up his friend, and noticed that he looked really swollen, so Jones immediately took him to the hospital for treatment.  

Jones says because Radio has diabetes, and that likely played a role. 

Coach Harold Jones says that he stayed overnight to be by his friend's side. Thankfully, Radio was discharged from the hospital Monday, August 12. 

The story of Kennedy’s friendship with former T.L. Hanna football coach Harold Jones was the subject of the film "Radio" in 2003.
