Larry Lujack has a unique distinction - he's the only jock to work at WLS in three different decades.

"Uncle Lar" got his start at 'LS in 1967, after a four-month stint in overnights at rival WCFL.

Lujack returned to WCFL in 1972, before coming back to WLS four years later after 'CFL dropped Top 40.

The man known as "Superjock" stayed at WLS until 1987, leaving just before that station switched from rock to full-time talk. WLS paid Lujack for five years after his departure to prevent him from going to another station in any market with an ABC owned-and-operated outlet.

A five-year non-compete? Now that's talent!
