Condolences to family and friends of BAUER RADIO Talk CITY TALK 105.9 FM/LIVERPOOL morning co-host PHIL EASTON, who died MONDAY afternoon (2/2) of a heart attack in LIVERPOOL.

He also served as PA announcer for LIVERPOOL FC at ANFIELD.

Co-host KIM HUGHES said, "I’m naturally devastated. PHIL was more than my co-host; he was my friend. I will miss him endlessly and send all of my love to his family."
