A long-time radio voice in Central Illinois has been silenced. Terry Todt, program and sport director and the voice of high school sports on Litchfield radio stations WSMI AM and FM, passed away Thursday at his Raymond home.
Todt was a classmate of Miller Media Group president Randal J. Miller at Lake Land College's Radio program in Mattoon, graduating in 1976.
For his excellence on the airwaves, Todt was inducted into the media division of the Illinois Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2001 and the Illinois Coaches Association (softball) Sportsperson of the Year in 2011.
He was also honored by the Bottomley-Ruffing-Schalk Baseball Museum in Nokomis, was a recipient of the Panhandle Education Foundation’s Distinguished Alumni Award and was the Montgomery County Cancer Association’s honorary chairman.
Funeral services for Terry Todt will be Thursday, May 30th, at 10 in the morning, at Lincolnwood High School gym in Raymond.
