From the Boston Globe — 5/29/2012
Long-time WBZ NewsRadio 1030 AM personality Lovell Dyett has died after a long illness, the station announced on its website today. He was 77… In addition to WBZ NewsRadio, Dyett worked at WBZ-TV, WGBH-TV, and the former WNAC-TV, WBZ said.
“A natural leader, trusted friend, and mentor, Dyett will be greatly missed by not only those who knew him personally, but also by those whose lives he touched over the airwaves of WBZ,” the station said in the posting…
“In Boston we did not have a person of color of his intellectual depth and quality of broadcasting who could captivate an audience from 9 o’clock until 12 midnight every Saturday night,” said Bruce Wall, pastor of Global Ministries Christian Church in Dorchester. “Not only the black community in Boston, but the white community, too; people in Boston all loved to listen to Lovell Dyett because he could address any issue across the board.”

William Dyett Ireland. Could you pass on my condolences please re Heather and John. I found out on the grapevine many years ago. I may have forwarded a condolence card but I did not know the date of the funerals. My son’s were very together and mature, last 5 years, like Dad. Cheers to both in heaven.
