Bob Lorenz Tribute Bob Lorenz was a reporter and the morning anchor of "Daylight Edition" for WDCB Public Radio for more than fifteen years. Bob will be missed greatly by his fellow staff members and the WDCB listeners that appreciated, among his many wonderful qualitites, his humor in the morning.

A copy of his obituary from the Daily Herald appears below:

Born June 8, 1963, in Chicago, to Robert Sr. and Ramona Lorenz, he died Monday, March 28, 2011, at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Bob was a news anchor for WDCB College of DuPage Radio. He also did voice-over work for Sears, Visa and the "Click It or Ticket" campaign, and was a stand-in for the movie "Wanted." Bob loved to cook, enjoyed music, played the drums and loved to retreat to Galena with family and friends to enjoy nature. Bob is survived by his beloved wife of seven years, Carolyn; loving stepsons, Joseph and Kyle; dear sisters, Cathleen Steinkuller of Glen Ellyn, Karen (Edwin) Rosenwinkel of Lombard and brother, Andrew (Valerie) of Virginia; and fond uncle of Gregory, Toni, Christen, Eddy and Matthew.
