Radio engineer Mark Zerang succumbs to cancer

| No Comments

Our condolences to the family of radio engineer Mark Zerang, who passed away late Friday after battling lung cancer. Though we didn't know him personally, we had heard him named and thanked on many radio broadcasts in recent years. And it's become clear to us in just the past few days that he was among the finest -- and most widely respected -- radio engineers working in Chicago. Zerang's death will certainly leave some very large shoes to fill in the engineering ranks in the local radio market.

A wake for Zerang is being held today at Drake and Sons, 5303 N. Western Avenue in Chicago. The funeral is Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Ita's Catholic Church, 5500 N. Broadway in Chicago. Interment is private.
