  1. Were gonna miss him. One of many who brings joy like the mailman nothing stops us.. We deliver joy and his contributions will keep him in out hearts.

  2. It makes us said when we hear a fellow broadcaster has fallen asleep in death. Our condolences go to Doug’s family and dear friends. Although I never worked with him, my respect for him and his workmates was very high. I feel glad I got to know him and talk with him about our common love …….. RADIO.
    Since our voices reach millions of people everyday we’re glad we can make their day a little better, we are humbled and honored. Perhaps we will meet again. ( John 5:28-29 )

  3. He was a bright spot on a dreary day. Radio will never be the same. I remember when he Sweat my name for me on my birthday. I enjoyed that so much. We go way back to WGCI and WBMX days in Chicago. Met him several times and always a pleasant person. God bless you my brother. May your journey be peaceful and your family find strength and comfort in their memories of you.

    To God be the glory

  4. I am a Chicago native. Doug Bank worked in Chi-Town for many years and his syndicated show is still heard in Chi-Town. We love him and the drive home (2pm to 6pm) just won’t be the same. Doug, rest in the arms of the Lord. Praying for his sole and his family.

  5. Doug Banks was simply extraordinary…….My prayers to his daughters, wife and Dede McGuire who has worked with Doug for so many years.
    A radio personality that is unforgettable who became our family each and everyday…….
    Blessings-

  6. Doug Banks we will miss you brother. You are not hosting your show from that golden station in heaven. We will continue to hold your radio family up especially De De Mc Guide and De De Renee. It still hard to believe we will no longer hear you on the radio. God knows what was best for you. Prayers and strength goes out to Wendy, Kennedy, Kelly, and your entire family. Until later Doug. Rest in paradise my friend.

  7. Will always cherish his warmth and grace. As as News [email protected] in the early 90s, my boss Perry Williams introduced
    him to me, & his first words to me were “Hey Z, wassup girl?” He and his morning team, Bonnie & Sybil welcomed me with open arms! It was that moment I changed my direction in radio from news to Radio Personality. He made everything so much fun. Never a dull moment with Doug, always sharing his joy with staff & listeners. Such a sweet, charming man. Chicago legend. Let’s keep his daughters Kennedy & Kellie, & the whole Banks family in prayer. # RIP DOUG BANKS
