Hank Baughman, a native of Westmoreland County, PA, was a well-loved and trusted broadcast news anchor in the greater Pittsburgh area until he was sidelined by health challenges in 2011. Beginning his career in broadcast journalism at the age of seventeen, Hank Baughman was one of the youngest full time radio newscasters in Pittsburgh market history. Hank Baughman was one of the few Pittsburgh area media professionals in the market to successfully work in radio, TV and in print.
Hank Baughman was running marathons and juggling radio duties at Pittsburgh’s WSHH-FM, WHJB-FM and WJAS-AM stations until early September 2011. While training for a marathon, Hank Baughman experienced severe chest pains before fainting during a training run. Hank Baughman was diagnosed with having atrial fibrillation – what is also known as an irregular, rapid heartbeat. Hank Baughman was hoping that having a pacemaker inserted would speed his recovery. Unfortunately, the pacemaker was rejected by his body; doctors were forced to remove the device less than two months later.
Hank Baughman struggled with his health until he underwent a cardiac ablation in October 2012 to burn away damaged heart tissue. Luckily, the operation was successful and stopped his heart’s fibrillations. Hank Baughman began a recovery process that was bolstered by the unwavering support of his friends and family. While his physical activity had to be limited, Hank Baughman embraced the opportunity to endeavor in extensive academic research on the topic of mind phenomena.
Since turning the corner on his recovery, Hank Baughman has been on a mission to share his story of mental and spiritual exploration, his hypothesis and his exhaustive research. Hank Baughman wants to share with people his belief that the afterlife is real – and far better than physical existence. Hank Baughman believes that we can draw strength from spiritual forces, and that angels are very real indeed.
As he embarked on his journey to wellness, Hank Baughman had numerous spiritual experiences, after which Hank Baughman became convinced that the physical is fundamentally wicked. Hank Baughman is hoping to generate much more discussion about the spiritual and physical than we see today.
Hank Baughman has harnessed his renewed zest for life by launching a new blog to share his years of research on the topics of ESP, mental telepathy, consciousness fields, mental transference and other topics regarding mental phenomena. Hank Baughman is thankful that he has not only successfully recovered from his health challenges but that his illness was also a turning point for him in his own spiritual growth.
