Willard Scott is probably best known as the weatherman on NBC's Today Show. But before breaking in to TV, Scott was a household name in radio in Washington. He and Ed Walker, who passed away this week, co-hosted a wildly popular daily show for nearly 20 years, but their friendship outlasted the show's on-air fame.
Longtime WAMU 88.5 host and radio legend Ed Walker passed away on Monday. Kojo spoke with Walker in 2009 about his journey and the special role that radio played in his life. Join Kojo as we revisit that conversation and reflect on Walker's life and legacy.
From his days as a pioneering student at American University through his final episode of WAMU 88.5's "The Big Broadcast," Ed Walker's love of radio came through every time he took the microphone. He died early Monday at age 83.
