Bill Bailey passed away yesterday morning while playing golf in Grand Rapids, MI. where recently he had been doing mornings at WGVU. Mr. Bailey had an illustrious career including WLS-AM Chicago and in Detroit at WNIC and WMXD.
Lyles Media Group president Harry Lyles worked with Bill at WMXD in Detroit and said, “Bill was the exception in morning radio- he was a morning man who loved his work and on every single show strived to be the best. With Bill’s incredible talent and history, we knew we had completed the WMXD staff when he agreed to join. Thanks to his morning show, it didn’t take long to become #1 in Adults . He will be missed, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”
Mr. Bailey is survived by his wife and two daughters.
