Dick, as everyone called him, had an amazing passion for the broadcast industry. He brought that passion for radio, specifically New Jersey radio, every day to WHTG-AM & FM, the WHTG Tower Corporation and to the NJ Broadcasters Association, an organization he truly loved and was committed to seeing succeed."
