Host / Producer
For twenty-five years, through three successful stints in both morning and evening drive, Eric Von was behind the microphone as host of one of Milwaukee’s most popular talk shows, the original Morning Magazine and The Eric Von Show, for radio station 1290 WMCS-AM.
Von received many awards and commendations for his on-air and community service work. His deft handling of national and local issues was widely acknowledged as the primary reason 1290 WMCS was nominated twice for the radio industry’s coveted Marconi Award.
Eric was the host of Precious Lives- our radio series about young people and gun violence in Milwaukee.
We were deeply saddened when Eric Von passed away in 2016. The Milwaukee community lost an irreplaceable voice and advocate.
