Dick Van Dyke Facts
Was a radio announcer at a Danville Illinois radio station at the age of 16. He did the news as well as spun records.

At the beginning of the third season, "The New Dick Van Dyke Show" (1971) had moved production from Phoenix to Hollywood, where the change made a big improvement in the ratings, but was canceled because he no longer enjoyed working away from his home and did not want to continue the show without Carl Reiner.

Separated from his wife, Margie Willett, after 30 years of marriage - they would later divorce in 1984.
