(5/2/2001) Bob Wall's Attempted Comeback In Chicago Comes To End.

According to Robert Feder of the Chicago Sun Times, Bob Wall will not be returning to Radio in Chicago. Wall had attempted a comeback on WVAZ-FM. Wall was the one-time morning man at WGCI-FM until he was charged with sexually molesting his 15-year old baby-sitter. Both Wall and his wife plead guilty and received probation. Wall also lost his $325,000-a-year job with the top-rated Urban Contemporary station.

Marv Dyson, president and general manager of V-103 and WGCI, told Feder that he thought perhaps enough time had passed to bring Wall back. After hearing from an unspecified number of concerned listeners, however, he had second thoughts.

"After serious further consideration, we have decided not to go forward with the Bob Wall audition because of negative reaction from the African-American community," Dyson said. Both V-103 and WGCI are owned by Clear Channel Communications.

Wall, 48, continues to host mornings as Bobby Harrison at KOLL-FM, a Clear Channel station in Little Rock, Ark.
