When NET Radio listeners turn on their radio this week, a familiar voice will be missing. long time radio announcer and host William Stibor died unexpectedly Monday at this home in Lincoln.
His death has left a void for many on the air and off.

Local theatre director Bob Hall was one of the many lucky people who knew Stibor, a tireless ambassador for the arts and humanities scene across Nebraska.

A classically trained tenor who performed with several prominent musical groups in Lincoln and Omaha bill joined NET radio in 1989 and found his voice on such shows as "Morning Concert" "Friday Live," a weekly arts and entertainment series broadcast from The Mill Coffee House.

Stibor was know across the state off the air as well serving as pre-show speaker for numerous events at the Lied Center, current board president for Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra and was the host for the Mayor's Arts Awards, a role he had just completed last Wednesday.

With a jovial laugh and always quick with a hug, Bill was one of my closest personal friends and colleagues in the arts community and I can assure you his passing has left a void that can not be replaced.
