Dave Williams Retires from KLIF, Dallas

In a post on Facebook, KLIF, Dallas morning personality Dave Williams announces his retirement from the “DFW Morning News” program. He writes, “Three months ago I suffered a blackout seizure. I’ve been recuperating and undergoing tests since then. The medical news is as good as can be hoped: Iim didn’t have a stroke or a heart attack and I don’t have a brain tumor or anything like it. Turns out it’s just one of those unexplained things that happen and very likely will never happen again. I’ve been cleared to return to work but have decided to call it a career. I’m 72, I’ve been in radio for 54 years, and for the past 42 years, I’ve been getting out of bed in the middle of the night to go to work. I just discovered I like sleeping in a bit. I will miss the daily enjoyment of the job and especially the people with whom I worked. And, thanks most of all to those of you who listened each morning and found some informational and entertainment value mornings on KLIF. Nothing lasts forever but I’m going to try. Stay well, y’all. Love your life. This is the month for giving thanks.”
