Weather with Don ThompsonThe WLNG radio family is sad to announce the passing of our longtime weather man Don Thompson. Don passed away today (Friday 4/3) at the age of 66 in Denver, Colorado, where he lived for the last several years. He had been with WLNG for the last quarter century and had also been a DJ here years ago, going by the nickname "Big Daddy." Don worked right up to the end, even filing weather reports on Gary Sapiane's morning show today (4/3.) His daughter Beth says the family will have a memorial service on the East End at a later date. No donation information is available at this time.
