Either Joe Martelle or Bill Heckbert mentioned on-air on WROR a while back
that Officer Bill was doing well recuperating from some surgery or some
such to his throat, and that he was not allowed to speak on the air for a
while. I can't recall the exact reason, but it may have been removal of
cysts or polyps from his throat.
I assume they intend for him to come back, since they still refer to the
traffic reports as "Officer Bill's Timesaver Traffic with Bill Heckbert..."
BTW, if you see a Chevy Astro minivan in MA State Police colors, that's
Officer Bill's 'cruiser.' I haven't seen it around in a long time (I'd see
it a couple of times a month in my travels), so I assume no other trooper
is using it at the moment.
