Personal message from Mike about the passing of Rick Buckley:

All of us at The Mike Gallagher Show and parent company Salem Communications are saddened and shocked by the sudden passing of Rick Buckley, Chairman and President of Buckley Broadcasting, owner of our radio affiliate in New York City, WOR. Rick was a broadcasting icon, a recipient of numerous awards and accolades during his storied career, and an executive who had a deep dedication his employees. He loved radio and always insisted that "the listener comes first." I had a warm visit with Rick in New York just a few days ago and will be paying tribute to this radio industry giant on my radio show Monday. We extend our deepest condolences to his wife Connie, his daughter Jen, and his extended family of colleagues, employees, and admirers. This feisty, energetic, creative visionary will be sorely missed.
