Dex Card was best known as the afternoon DJ on WLS-AM from 1964-1967, coming to Chicago after many years of working in major markets nationwide. A few years after exiting WLS-AM, he also appeared on rival WCFL-AM on a freelance basis, doing some fill-in and weekend shows. After leaving Chicago radio, Card went into concert promotion around the Midwest, and then purchased a handful of radio stations in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin stations were sold in 1989. Card has been retired and living in Florida since 1993.
