Condolences to family and friends of former longtime KSRO-A/SANTA ROSA, CA morning host JIM GRADY, who died WEDNESDAY (2/13) at 77. The station says that GRADY was hospitalized in NOVEMBER and never recovered from his illnesses.
GRADY joined KSRO in 1960, first for afternoons and then replacing KEN MINYARD (who left for a long run at KABC-A/LOS ANGELES) in mornings, and stayed for over 40 years until being let go in MARCH 2004. He subsequently hosted a weekend show on crosstown REDWOOD EMPIRE STEREOCASTERS AC KZST until his health faltered in OCTOBER.
