Funeral arrangements pending for "Big" Ron O'Brien

Here's a link to our story in today's paper about "Big" Ron O'Brien, afternoon jock on 98.1 WOGL, who died yesterday from complications of pneumonia. O'Brien, who was 56 and lived in King of Prussia, had been off air recently and hospitalized at Paoli Memorial Hospital. O'Brien, who had just signed a three-year contract extension with WOGL, where he had worked since 2002, was heard here on WFIL from 1976 to 1979. Funeral arrangements are still being worked on, but there will be a Friday service open to fans. We'll keep you posted.
