Condolences to the family and friends of longtime KGMI/BELLINGHAM radio announcer and former City Council member WALTER HAINES FAY, who died WEDNESDAY morning, DEC. 17th at age 87.
THE BELLINGHAM HERALD reports, "FAY retired from KGMI in MARCH 1992 after being a radio announcer for 48 years. FAY, who went by HAINES rather than WALTER, was immensely well-known in the community as a distinctive voice in local radio news, for his play-by-play coverage of high school football and basketball, and as the host of a daily call-in talk show, 'Impact,' which first aired in 1970.
