The Chicago Federation of Labor would like to express our sympathy for the passing of the legendary radio personality Larry Lujack. His sarcastic on-air demeanor helped set the stage for the “shock jock” movement. As a DJ on the CFL’s former radio station WCFL, he added his voice to the collective “Voice of Labor” for four years from 1972-1976. After leaving WCFL, he was a staple of the Chicago airwaves until 1987 when he retired from radio. He later left Chicago and moved to New Mexico. From 2000-2006, he enjoyed two separate stints on Chicago radio, broadcasting remotely from his New Mexico home. Lujack was inducted into the Illinois Broadcasters Association's Hall of Fame in June 2002 and the National Radio Hall of Fame in November 2004.
