We are grateful to Frank Gottlieb of KQV who brought to our attention (or lack thereof) two deaths in the radio world.
Jim White, last heard on St. Louis’ KMOX and a one-time WJAS-AM (1320) and KDKA-AM (1020) announcer, passed away last Wednesday (September 2) due to complications from surgery. He was 72. He served KMOX for 30 years beginning in 1969 when he started as an assistant news director. 20 of those years, he was heard in the late night hours over the clear channel signal throughout much of North America.
Hilary Bogden, who also worked for WJAS and was well known throughout the broadcast media in Pittsburgh, passed away at the age of 85 last Thursday (September 3). Bogden was a member of AFTRA.
