We're starting to turn into an obituary blog here, but wow, just wow. Chicago Tribune entertainment columnist Terry Armour died on Friday from an apparent heart attack. Armour, who was only 46 years old, collapsed at the Tribune offices on Friday and was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Armour bounced around a number of duties at the Tribune, from covering the Bulls beat in the 90s during their championship seasons, to penning the popular "INC." column with Ellen Warren, to his most recent gig as an entertainment columnist and feature writer including the Sunday "Armour & Co.". Armour also was a mid-day radio host along with Stan Lawrence on WCKG until this past fall when the station changed formats.
We've had the opportunity to talk to Terry on many occasions, and he was always a charming, friendly person who just seemed to love life and having fun. His presence in the newsroom and around town is sure to be missed.[Trib] --Prescott Carlson
