1999 Inductee

Jack Eno was the epitome of the soothing elegance and friendly community spirit of WEBR across almost four decades at that classic radio station. A crackerjack personality, quizmaster, newsman, drama director and program chief, he was one of local broadca sting’s most versatile performers and managers. Fresh out of school, Eno started in 1935 as WEBR’s “Olde Towne Crier,” then lent his personal magic to every program he touched, including “Listen While You Lunch,” “The Musical Food Basket,” “Tel-o-Test,” “Musical Showcase” and “The German Jamboree. “Under his distinctive direction, WEBR became “The Sound of the City” throughout the 1960s. Eno still was working daily at WEBR when he died in 1975 at age 62.
