Bill was truly a man of many talents.
While others can pay more eloquent tributes than I can, to his genius as a broadcaster and entrepreneur, I remember his willingness to take a clear political stand in the early 1980’s, while others, for perfectly understandable commercial reasons, kept their opinions to themselves. 

This was brave, risky, and patriotic and it showed the true character of the man.

I extend sympathy to his wife , Hilary , and his entire family.
