Sad News

Eddie Schwartz, long-time overnight radio voice in Chicago, has passed away after a long illness. WBBM News Radio just reported the news.

I knew Ed (we worked together at the Loop). He truly loved radio, and deeply cared about Chicago. He will be missed.

I interviewed him not too long ago for this website. At that time he was already having major health issues. You can read that interview here.

Robert Feder wrote the obit in the Chicago Sun Times.
