FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): It is with a heavy heart that WOWO reports, Charly Butcher, a family man and Fort Wayne radio fixture, has passed away at the age of 61. He died Wednesday afternoon likely due to a cardiac event.
Charly was the loving husband of elementary school teacher, Sarah Butcher, and the father of three wonderful kids. There are no words to express what this loss means to his family, friends, his co-workers, and listeners.
Charly started morning radio in Ft. Wayne at 97.3 WMEE from January 1983 – November 1993 (“Those Two Guys” with Tony Richards). He then transitioned to doing middays on WOWO but in the mid 90’s returned back to 97.3 WMEE to do mornings again. In 2000, he moved to afternoon drive on 97.3 WMEE until he went back to WOWO to do Fort Wayne’s Morning News in 2004 and had been there ever since.
