BOSTON (AP) - Longtime Boston radio personality Neil Chayet has died at age 78.
Chayet's family says he died Friday at his home in Salem, Massachusetts after a nine-month battle against small cell cancer.
Chayet, the host of local CBS Radio show "Looking at the Law" on WBZ NewsRadio 1030, retired in June due to his illness after 42 years on air and more than 10,000 episodes recorded.
The Boston native graduated from Tufts University and Harvard Law School and remained an active alumnus at both institutions.
Chayet is survived by his wife, daughter and two sons.
