Wayne State to host Sonny Eliot memorial on Dec. 6

Wayne State University has announced it will host a memorial service next week for the late broadcaster Sonny Eliot. The well-known media personality and longtime broadcaster on WWJ-AM (950) radio died Nov. 16 at age 91. In his honor, Wayne State announced Thursday that it is putting on an event Dec. 6 called "Always Sonny!" at the Community Arts Auditorium. A dozen friends and colleagues are scheduled to speak at the celebration, including local football broadcaster Jim Brandstatter and Detroit Zoo executive director and CEO Ron Kagan. Eliot hosted movies on local TV and voiced countless commercials. But his longest-lasting gig was as a weathercaster, a job he held for well into the 21st Century.
