Condolences to family, friends, and fans of legendary WABC-A/NEW YORK personality RON LUNDY, who died TODAY (3/15) of a heart attack. LUNDY, who had been recovering from a previous heart attack, was 75.
LUNDY, known for his hearty catchphrase "Hello love!," started his career at WHHM-A/MEMPHIS, WDDT-A/GREENVILLE, MS and WLCS-A/BATON ROUGE before joining WIL-A/ST. LOUIS, where he worked in 1960-65. From there, LUNDY joined the staff of WABC, where he became an integral part of the station's Top 40 lineup until the flip to Talk in 1982. He later did middays at crosstown CBS RADIO Oldies WCBS-F until his 1997 retirement, when he moved to MISSISSIPPI.
