Bill Trumbull, who regaled Washington’s radio audiences for two decades as co-host of an easy-going and top-rated afternoon program, died of respiratory failure Jan. 10 at Prince William Hospital in Manassas. He was 77.
The death was confirmed by his former on-air partner, Chris Core. WMAL’s “Trumbull and Core” program was a staple of the weekday evening commute from 1976 to 1996. In all, Mr. Trumbull spent 36 years at the station and was usually on the air six days a week.
