This is Larry Morrow

Larry Morrow, a veteran radio personality, shares his thoughts and stories about his long career in the business.
Larry hit the Cleveland airwaves in 1966 at rock ‘n’ roll powerhouse WIXY 1260 as one of the “WIXY Supermen,” who led that station to #1 ratings.
Always an outspoken booster for his adopted home town—even in tough times when that attitude was uncommon — Morrow quickly became popular off the air, too. He was master of ceremonies for many of Cleveland’s biggest events, including its official bicentennial celebration, attended by 450,00 people — the largest crowd ever assembled in Cleveland. He was chosen to introduce five U.S. presidents. For his nonstop civic efforts he was given the honorary title “Mr. Cleveland” by former mayor George Voinovich.
Morrow was inducted into the prestigious Radio and Television Hall of Fame and is the only Ohio broadcaster nominated to the National Radio Hall of Fame.
