According to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth, an iconic local radio personality has died.
Bill Darwin, a well-known morning radio and television voice in northern Indiana for more than 40 years, died Wednesday, May 7.
Darwin was 80.
"Bill was in love with radio and he was in love with his listeners," said Vince Turner, who worked with Darwin from 1983-97. "It really was a relationship he had with the people he saw or imagined beyond the microphone."
Darwin became the standard for much of Elkhart County's morning news in the 1970s and '80s after he came to Elkhart in 1967. He retired from radio in August 2009 after 42 years with the station.
