Franklyn MacCormack - The Torch Is Burning
The elements that comprise this Live365 station were assembled and programmed by Bill Bro. As a 12-year-old boy growing up in the Chicago suburbs, he was influenced by WGN personalities that included Franklyn MacCormack, Wally Phillips, and Eddie Hubbard. Bro enjoyed a career in broadcasting that spanned more than 30 years and included his ownership of radio and TV interests in downstate Illinois and that also resulted in a decades long friendship with WGN announcer Dick Lashbrook, who is now retired and living in Florida. Following his retirement from radio, Bill has served since 2002 as CEO of the Kidney Cancer Association, after a bout with the disease in 1989.
