…..a very long portion of the morning show was predicated on conversation and information surrounding the viscous wanton and incomprehensible murder of—by all descriptions- a lovely young woman in South Boston.
I believe everyone by now is familiar with the facts in this terrible event.
There isn't much more to say about the horrid fate dealt Amy Lord at the hands of "God knows who" (or what.)
Now we are left to pick up the pieces, and for a family to work through their grief, and carry on.
How they do that, I do not know, and by the grace of God, thus far in my life --- haven’t had to know.
I have no wisdom to offer, no panacea for the misery so unnecessarily inflicted.
Amy –as most now know-hailed from Wilbraham, and graduated Minnechaug High.
She went on to Bentley University, graduated and pursued a career in high tech in Boston.
By most acceptable definition, an admirable and successful route to happiness and a bright future.
She walked an enlightened, hopeful and proper path.
How distorted and tragic and gut wrenching turn, everything took.
We at the morning show, WHYN, Springfield and Western Mass stand with the Lord family, and feel, in the collective sleepless nights ahead, that we have all been diminished.
May those who have brought this horror to pass be found, prosecuted, and properly isolated, or disposed of as the Commonwealth sees fit.
Keep Amy and her family in your mind and in your heart.
She was one of us.

Bo Sullivan first began his long career at WHYN radio in 1990 as a sports talk show producer. Bo then moved on to become the host of that sports talk show. In 1993, Bo became the sports anchor and co-host for the WHYN morning show. After a few hiatuses, both planned and unplanned, Bo came back to stay in 1996 as the morning show sports anchor, producer, and co-host.
Born and raised in Westfield, he's now raising his own family there. He lives with his wife Kris and daughters Leighanne and Shannon. When Bo was growing up, his father Richard Sullivan was superintendent of schools in two local communities. Politics runs in the family. Brother Brian is a Westfield city councilor and brother Rick is the city's seven term mayor. Besides transporting his children to various activities including CCD and swimming lessons, he coaches both daughters in three different sports. He also works as a part-time political consultant. In his scarce spare time, Bo likes to golf and is a frequent visitor to the Connecticut casinos.
What does Bo like most about his position at WHYN? For one, he's a big fan of waking at 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. He also enjoys meeting the many loyal listeners to the show. His lifelong ambition is to open a sports bar and play Texas Hold 'em every day of his life.
