Radio Hall of Famer Garry Meier on radio’s past, present and future (CCC)

Radio Hall of Fame member Garry Meier jumps in the Mazda CX-9 on the eve of his weeklong fill-in doing mornings on WLS-AM 890.

  • The Loop back in the Garry Meier era: Sodom and Gomorrah?
  • Does Garry’s audience allow him to evolve as an air personality?
  • How Garry sees the world, as a talk radio host?
  • What would Garry say to prospective broadcasters?
  • Garry feels weird about eating on camera.
  • What was it like recently reconnecting with Kevin Matthews?
  • The Radio Hall of Fame honorific.
  • The personal high points of Garry’s career.
  • Chicago’s relationship with radio stars.
  • The worst radio crutches.
  • Where did people with work ethics go?
