DICK BIONDI can smile again, as CUMULUS Classic Hits WLS-F/CHICAGO welcome back the radio legend, who’s been off the air dealing with health issues since mid-OCTOBER. Unfortunately, his debut today was postponed on account of 18 inches of snow.
"In a phone interview last week, the 82-year-old BIONDI told ROBERT FEDER that he was eager to return pending approval from his doctor. 'To be very honest, I’m going crazy sitting here and waiting to go back to work,” he said.
FEDER reports that, "BIONDI has been battling back for seven weeks since he spent three days in the hospital for treatment of an irregular heartbeat and dehydration. On the day he returned home, he slipped and fell, suffering multiple nasal fractures."
