Revered Irish and American radio personality BOB GALLICO passed away over the weekend at age 83. A NEW YORK native, GALLICO hosted a very popular morning show on DUBLIN’s RADIO NOVA. GALLICO returned to the U.S. from IRELAND in 2004 and was living in CONNECTICUT.
"BOB told me of his [undisclosed] diagnosis last autumn and said he expected to get a year," long-time friend and colleague DECLAN MEEHAN told MEDIABISTRO. "He was very philosophical about it. He said, ‘Well, you know, I’ve had a good run, I’m in my eighties now, I’ve done everything I want to do. And, well, if this is the end that has been chosen, so be it.'
