Warren Buffett, the 82-year-old billionaire investor, said he has completed cancer treatment, according to a report in the Omaha Herald
"It's a great day for me," he told executives from newspapers he owns -- including the Herald -- on Friday. "Today I had my 44th and last day of radiation."
Buffett, CEO of Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway, had announced this spring that he was diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer and began radiation treatment in July.
News of his health had stirred speculation about who would succeed the octogenarian whose investment enterprise owns firms in sectors such as manufacturing, utilities, insurance and newspapers.
