Longtime WGN Radio crime reporter Larry Schreiner passed away last night of a cardiac arrest. Listen as Steve Cochran, Andrea Darlas, and the rest of the morning show share their favorite memories of Larry.
Like most reporters Larry loved to be in the field, and that’s exactly where he was on New Years Eve of 1999, leading into what everyone thought would be a disastrous, Y2K. At the end of the podcast, listen to the actual audio where he is in the middle of gunfire, filing a live report with WGN’s Andrea Darlas shortly before midnight. (Note: You can hear gunfire in the background)
