Karen Beckmann, his wife, told The Detroit News that doctors give him days to live.

The 72-year-old longtime media personality has been suffering from vascular dementia, a rare and untreatable brain disease.

“The doctors said they don’t expect him to last until Monday,” his wife said. 

During his career in radio, Beckmann called games for Michigan football, the Detroit Tigers, and the Detroit Lions.

We love you, Frank!
