Just now WBBM Radio Chicago reported that comedian Bernie Mac has passed away from pneumonia.
I believe he was 50
Sorry for the short diary.
The radio report said he passed away from pneumonia unrelated to another lung ailment he had.
Another talented comedian has died much too young.
I know there are web pages saying he is still alive but WBBM 780 am Chicago is a very reputable straight news source. They say it is from the Chicago Sun Times.
WBBM is now reporting it is an unconfirmed report of the Chicago Sun Times. It looks like it is all based on the Chicago Sun Times report.
UPDATE 2 update 8:24 A.M.
Sadly WBBM is now reporting that his publicist has confirmed his passing
RIP Bernie Mac
