"When all is said and done, a company, its chief executive, and his whole management team are judged by one criterion alone - performance."

Lyle Dean, legendary Chicago radio news person signs-off at WGN tomorrow. The news coming via Robert Feder this morning. We will not see nor hear the likes of the great Lyle Dean again anytime soon. KOIL, WLS, ABC's American Contemp net, Lyle became a nationally known and respected voice. Over his many years on the air he inspired generations of radio anchors. He was instrumental in creating the 24-hour newsroom at RKO's WFYR (a history making first for FM music radio) serving as our ND. A class act, always the perfect gentleman, his wit and rich sense of humor consistently present. My thanks to programming whiz Tom Teuber who got in touch with the news. Tom also reminded me...Lyle, along with Lee Harris, once owned a very successful Polka station, WIBU, Poynette here in Wisconsin.
