I found out yesterday along with all of you that a familiar voice in Wichita is hanging up his headphones. You've heard him on The Fox during severe weather. He is Dan Dillon. He has been the news director of our sister station KFDI for 34 years. Not only that, in the short time I have been here, he has become my friend. When I first moved here, I was a little freaked out about the severe Kansas weather. I grew up on the Gulf of Mexico and have been through more than 50 hurricanes in my life, but I've never experienced the crazy Kansas weather storms and tornados. Even off the air, Dan has that calming, reassuring voice that made me feel more comfortable. I live in a place with no basement, so when there has been severe weather, I've grabbed my dog SJ and we both come up to the Radio Ranch to feel more safe. Watching Dan and his team in action during storm coverage was a sight to see.
Godspeed Dan. Thank you for all you've done and your dedication to Kansans throughout the years. Enjoy your next adventure.
