RIP Morgan

Steve Cannon, the voice of 'CCO radio for many many years has succumbed to cancer.
WCCO says Cannon died Monday night after a five-month battle with cancer.

Cannon retired from WCCO in 1997, signing off after nearly 40 years on Minnesota airwaves. He worked for 13 years as a morning show host at KSTP-AM before joining rival WCCO in 1971.

Cannon dubbed himself "king of the kilohertz, prince of the airwaves." His show -- from "the basement studio" at WCCO -- featured Cannon bantering with his characters Ma Linger, Morgan Mundane and Backlash LaRue (pictured).
