R.I.P.: KATF Morning Host, PD Mike Callaghan

Mike Callaghan
One of Dubuque's most recognizable radio voices for more than 40 years has fallen silent.

AC KATF 92.9 FM reports Morning Show Host and station Program Director Mike Callaghan died Thursday morning from complications of lung and pancreatic cancer. He was 60 years old.

Callaghan was a Dubuque native. He was the long-time morning show host on KAT-FM, teaming with Lisa Bennett for the last seven years.

In September, doctors determined Callaghan had an aggressive form of lung cancer. Bennett said he would often come to work during his treatments.

In June 2016, the Dubuque Fire Department recognized Mike Callaghan and 4 others for helping alert students of a March 2016 fire in a Loras College dorm.

Callaghan leaves behind his wife, Sharon, three daughters, and three grandchildren.
