Friends and fans are mourning a longtime Springfield radio personality who died earlier this week after a long illness.
Jeff Hofmann was the news director and morning show co-host on WFMB-AM.
He passed away Wednesday night at St. John’s Hospice. Hofmann first came to Springfield on what was then 1450 WCVS in the early 1980s.
He left the station in 1990 and then returned in 1998.
Visitation will be held tonight from 5 until 8 at Kirlin, Egan and Butler Funeral Home, with services tomorrow at St. Al’s Church.
