Longtime WGN-AM radio host, Milton "Milt" J. Rosenberg, died of pneumonia and its complications Tuesday January 9, 2018 at the age of 92 as reported by the Chicago Tribune. Sisters Judith Murphy, Barbara McCarry, Pat Coughlin and Patti Cielinski remember him very well from being interviewed on his Extension 720 radio show back in December of 2006. In honor of the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago Celebrating 100 Years in Rogers Park, Sister Patti Cielinski arranged for Sisters Judy, Barbara and Pat to be interviewed on the almost 2 hour long program that our community is forever grateful to Milt Rosenberg and WGN-AM for the opportunity. Our prayers are with Milt Rosenberg and his family during this difficult time.
