Meltdown on WRIF

Weekdays 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

I woke to the news that we’d lost a true radio legend, Carl Coffee. I didn’t know Carl very well, but working across the hall from him for a few years, I have nothing but positive things to say about him. He was always very nice, and seemed to have a lot of respect for me…as I did for him.

The last time I saw Carl was during our 50th anniversary celebration on February 14, 2021. Lots of the older jocks came back to celebrate with us. We were still doing Covid protocols, but it was great to chat with him on the air. His smooth delivery, storytelling and legendary presence was what Carl was about. A true pro!

Rest In Peace, my friend…..
