RIP Doug Banks

Sad news. A giant in the radio business has died. All Access has the news...

ALL ACCESS has confirmed that longtime radio veteran and syndicated morning host DOUG BANKS has passed.

BANKS was diagnosed with diabetes in the '80s. His condition worsened last year and he took some time off, but he returned to his syndicated THE DOUG BANKS RADIO SHOW early this year.

More details to come.

Banks first became famous here in Chicago before taking his show down to Dallas (though it still aired here in Chicago). I've met him several times over the years. A truly nice man.
