Chicago lost a helluva newsman.
NBC 5’s Dick Johnson died from pulmonary fibrosis, while isolating from COVID-19 in Michigan.
He won about every award of note, but as a competitor was most noted for his warmth, humor, and booming baritone laugh.

Was just talking about him yesterday with friends. Sara Sadat Lina Shah a great guy who did so much for others. So happy to hear about the dedication. If I wasn’t working I would be there in a heartbeat.
