Condolences to family and friends of former UTAH radio personality and station owner PAUL DROUBAY, who died MONDAY (1/14) in SALT LAKE CITY at 86, according to the SALT LAKE TRIBUNE.
DROUBAY owned KDAB/OGDEN, which he moved into the SALT LAKE CITY market after convincing the FCC to waive its previous policy and allow the station to locate its transmitter closer to SALT LAKE CITY. He began on the air in POCATELLO, ID and worked at KWIC-A, KLUB-A, and KUTV (TV), also owning KSXX-A (now KTKK-A) as well as KDAB (now KBER) with partner STANLEY D. BUSH. During the early 1970's, he also served as color commentator for the ABA's UTAH STARS on cable TV.
