Another News Great Gone

I'm not sure how many here knew the name John Bohannon, but he was one of the best broadcasters and news guys in the biz. A terrific talent whose voice was instantly recognizable, I used to hear him regularly when I was working at CKEY in the 70s, which was affiliated with CBS Radio News. (Not to be confused with Jim Bohannon, who took over for Larry King when he left his overnight show on the now extinct Mutual Broadcasting Network and whose show is still on the air.)

All these greats going at once is getting depressing. 

John Bohannon dies; journalist, 'Jazz Cafe' radio show host was 82
