One of Chicago radio's most famous names, Milt Rosenberg, was honored by the Chicago City Council recently. He received a proclamation recognizing his contributions to the city from his long radio and academic careers, and for his return to the local airwaves. The proclamation was sponsored by Alderman Ed Burke, and signed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and City Clerk Susana Mendoza. The wording of the proclamation can be seen on the Chicagoland Radio and Media website.
Rosenberg is best known as the highly-regarded host of WGN-AM's Extension 720, which he took over as host of in 1973. He was with the show until its cancellation in December 2012. He launched a podcast series five months later on his personal website, MiltRosenberg.com. At the start of April of this year, Rosenberg, 90, returned to Chicago radio, joining WCGO-AM as its midday host.
