Chaz Ebert (Roger Ebert’s Wife) Urges Steve Dahl And Garry Meier To Bury Hatchet For Induction Into National Radio Hall of Fame

October 25, 2013


It seems there are many who are hoping for the better angels to lead the way when it comes to Steve Dahl’s announcement that he will not be attendance for his induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame.  The war of words between Steve Dahl and his former radio partner Garry Meier are legendary.  I added my comments to this mess on CP last night. Those lingering differences and resentments are now clouding what otherwise would be a most amazing evening for the broadcast world.

As such Chaz Ebert, wife of the famed Roger Ebert, has added her voice to the chorus of others for Steve and Garry to move on and come together for this event.

Dear Steve: Please go! Yes, please join Garry Meier and attend your induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame at the Museum of Broadcast Communications on Nov. 9. Take Janet and your sons and let them help you bask in the honor you have been overdue for too long. And please start making more positive remarks about Garry and the event. Time to pour honey over the wounds.

And Garry: Please call Steve to discuss it. Bury the hatchet long enough to unite for this event. Do it for Chicago, but most of all, do it to free your heart from the prison of 20 years of resentment. You are an intelligent man, and I cannot profess to know what is in your heart and mind, but this whole thing must still sting. Give it one more try.

I don’t usually intercede uninvited in other people’s squabbles, but this just feels like it is crying out for someone to step in. That event will be so much better and so much more meaningful if it is attended by both of you and your families. I bet more Chicagoans will attend if you are both there.

I wasn’t planning to attend because I will be out of town, but if I know you both will be there, I will come. There are some names that just sound right together, especially in Chicago. Steve Dahl and Garry Meier, Garry Meier and Steve Dahl, either way, it just sounds right.

    Oh the drama….

    Is Steve Dahl really deserving of this much attention? All of these reports, appeals from the public and celebs plays right into his hand and continues to feed his ego.

    He’s a big boy. If he wants to stay home, please let him.
