Condolences to family and friends of longtime PHILADELPHIA radio personality BILL "WEE WILLIE" WEBBER, who died SUNDAY morning of an apparent heart attack at his PHILADELPHIA home at the age of 80, according to the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER's MICHAEL KLEIN.
WEBBER's career first took him to the short-lived WEEU-TV/READING, then to WPEN-A, WFIL-A-F-TV (now WFIL-A, WIOQ, and WPVI-TV), and WRCV-TV-A (now KYW-TV and KYW-A) before he started a 25-year run in middays at WIP-A. He also hosted a daily children's show on WPHL-TV (1965-75) and WKBS-TV (1975-78). After a run at GREATER MEDIA Adult Standards WPEN-A in 1989-2005, WEBBER (who stood over 6'5", despite the "WEE WILLIE" nickname) most recently handled a midday show at MARCONI BROADCASTING Adult Standards WHAT-A.
