Broadcaster Larry Morrow to discuss faith, radio at Bay UMC

Larry Morrow, multiple award-winning broadcaster and author, will speak Jan. 27 at Bay United Methodist Church. Morrow, who won numerous awards during his broadcast career of nearly 40 years, will appear in the church's "Living the Faith" series. A member of the Radio and Television Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Broadcasters Hall of Fame, he is the only Ohio broadcaster nominated to the National Radio Hall of Fame.

A late 1950s U. S. Marine Corps veteran, Morrow went to Vietnam to interview troops on their war experiences and brought home their recorded messages for their families. Some were aired by Cleveland and Pennsylvania stations during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

Morrow moved to Cleveland to work at WIXY 1260 in 1966, arriving in the midst of the Hough riots. He and his wife, Rosary, live in Chagrin Falls.

He has been active with over 150 local charities, making some 100 appearances a year, and currently announces a program called "Truth for Life" which originates from Parkside Church in Bainbridge Township, which Morrow and his family attend.

Also an author, he will remain after the speech to meet audience members and sign copies of his recently released book, "This Is Larry Morrow," which will be available for purchase.

The "Living the Faith" series, presented by BUMC's Adult Studies ministry, is planned to feature two or three programs each year in which individuals of achievement discuss how their faith is a fundamental element of their daily lives. Previous speakers include columnist Terry Pluto and newscaster Ted Henry.

The Jan. 27 program will be at  7 p.m. at the church, 29931 Lake Rd., Bay Village. There is no admission fee. For further information, call the church at 440-871-2082 or email bayumc@sbcglobal.net.
