FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's NewsCenter) - WOWO legend Bob Chase announced this morning that he will be retiring from radio. His last day on air with WOWO will be June 5th. The 83-year-old Chase will remain as the voice of the Fort Wayne Komets heading into his 57th season calling Komet hockey.

During his time at WOWO, Chase worked in promotions, programming and sports. Bob Chase told Indiana's NewsCenter this morning that he would describe his career as a storybook one.

"I have to say that I am so thankful that I grew up in the golden age, not just in radio, but tv and media. Reporter- is it hard to walk away after 56 years? Chase- Oh yes, it becomes part of your life and is a habit, but I told "murph" we were finally going on our honeymoon... laughter"
