Longtime JACKSON, MS radio personality JOHN FRISKILLO remains in critical condition this morning at the UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI MEDICAL CENTER after being beaten and robbed in his SOUTH JACKSON mobile home on THURSDAY, reports THE CLARION-LEDGER.
Two brothers suspected in the attack, JOSH MOTT, 24 and ZACH MOTT, 19, were later arrested.
FRISKILLO worked 20 years at WJQS, moved on to WCCL, WKKE and WJNT, spinning records and doing the news, "my real love," he said in a CLARION-LEDGER interview before a stroke nearly ended his career in 1988.
