He joined WBBM Newsradio Chicago in February, 1969 just after the station became an all-new outlet for CBS.  He came in as an anchorperson and soon was a general assignment reporter, but since he always had an interest in stories that were business related, it wasn’t long before he was asked to start a business news segment on a regular basis. He quickly became Business Editor for the station. We spoke in preparation for the book “WBBM Radio, Yesterday and Today.”
