Armour was rushed to the hospital this afternoon after falling ill. He died a short time later.
Armour worked at the Tribune, covering the Bulls’ championship run in the 1990’s and previously co-hosted a midday talk show with Stan Lawrence on WCKG-FM until two months ago, when the station dropped its FM talk format.
This is the second time in the last 36 hours that a Chicago media personality has died. On Thursday, WILV-FM DJ Mark Sullivan passed away at the age of 40.
