Skip to comments.Outpouring of support for Don Wade ‘overwhelming’
Posted on 09/30/2012 1:39:05 PM PDT by Gosh I love this neighborhood
Prayers and well-wishes have been pouring in to news/talk WLS-AM (890) since listeners learned Monday about morning host Don Wades upcoming surgery to remove a growth from his brain. The response has truly been overwhelming, said Donna Baker, vice president and market manager of Cumulus Media in Chicago. Many thousands have written in and theyre really heartwarming. This man has friends who are praying for him all over the world. Wade, 71, who has hosted mornings on WLS with his wife, Roma, since 1989, is scheduled for surgery Thursday in Chicago. The station has an email account at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, Prayers. Great people. Great show. I enjoyed them when I live in Chicago.
Praying for Don and Roma. I have listened to them every morning for many years. I miss them so much! Speedy recovery, Don!
Years ago, I listened to them early in the morning when the station would come in clearer to my area of Michigan.
Any news on his condition?
Prayers for him and his family.
Thanks for the posting. From my location in central Wisconsin I’ve been following their teriffic weekday am husband and wife team show 5-9am on WLS 890 for years,on the dial (direct signal) including when there was a contract dispute. But their subs never mentioned why the two were off the air or if they did I didn’t hear it. This explains it. Hope the surgery is successfull and the patient lives. In any event they very likely will be out of circulation at a very important time.
Any news? I miss them, big time!
I could not find any updates,
