Longtime Boston radio personality Neil Chayet has died. He was 78.
Mr. Chayet’s family says he died Friday at his home in Salem after a nine-month battle against small cell cancer.
Mr. Chayet, the host of “Looking at the Law” on WBZ-AM (1030), retired in June because of his illness. The commentaries were on the air for 42 years, and more than 10,000 episodes were recorded.
Mr. Chayet, a Boston native, graduated from Tufts University and Harvard Law School, and he remained an active alumnus at both institutions.
Mr. Chayet is survived by his wife, daughter and two sons.
