On Thursday, September 22, 2011 we lost a beloved member of the WGAR family, as Chuck Collier passed away unexpectedly. He was an Ohio boy, whose broadcasting career on the Cleveland airwaves spanned more than 3 decades.
He loved radio and he loved Cleveland... and Cleveland, along all of us here at WGAR and Clear Channel Cleveland, truly loved him. Anyone who ever listened to or met Chuck knew instantly the kind and caring human being he was.
To his wife, his children and entire Collier family ...our sincere condolences, along with our gratitude for sharing Chuck with us.
Rest in peace Chuck...rest in peace.
The tragedy in Indianapolis last Saturday at the Sugarland concert, made me very sad. My thoughts & prayers go out to the families & friends who lost loved ones, as well as to those who were injured. I wish you a very speedy recovery. I have been in the "Sugar Pit" this year. It was much fun & having the stage collapse on me was the last thing on my mind. The odds are that we are all going to go through life without anything like this happening to us or our loved ones. But, things like this do happen. Let's take the time & effort to draw our friends & family close to us. One never knows.
