Teddy Bear is on the air!
One of the smoothest and longest-tenured of the Big Eight jocks, Ted "The Bear" Richards started at 'CK in 1972 and was there until the end of the Big 8 era in 1984. Richards' first radio gig was in 1965 at WBLR Batesburg-Leesburg in his home state of South Carolina. He was also on WDXY Sumter, South Carolina, Armed Forces Radio and WAPE Jacksonville, Florida, before going to the Big 8. While at 'CK, he worked mostly early-evening or late-evening shifts, with a couple of stints in afternoon drive. Post-'CK, Richards jocked at WOMC Detroit, WHND Dearborn, Mich., WRQN Toledo, WTRG Raleigh, North Carolina, Jones Radio Networks in Denver and WVCO Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
