Always offering a ‘Good morning!’ Ty Boyd, Carolinas radio legend, dies at age 88.

NCAB Broadcasters:

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of NCAB Hall Of Fame Inductee Ty Boyd. 

His obituary from the Charlotte Observer is below. 

His was the voice of the Carolinas, offering a happy “Good morning!” for more than a decade to all whose clock radio was set to WBT.

Ty Boyd, whose name still warms the hearts of the more senior among us, died Monday morning after a period of declining health. He was 88.

Though illness and heartbreak struck Boyd late in life, he never lost the spirit that made him a legend of radio and then TV in the 1960s and 70s
