Akron Talker Dies From Heart Attack.

Akron Ohio - 6/17/2012

Howie Chizek was a talk host for nearly 40. He'd been on WNIR in Akron since 1974 and it was his show that prompted management to become one of the first FM stations to go all talk on the FM dial. He died Saturday of an apparent heart attack while on a plane traveling to Florida. He was 65. Chizek was on the air six days a week. He worked the 10-3 shift weekdays and a 9 to noon every Saturday.
