ALL ACCESS sends condolences to family and friends of former WSM-AM/NASHVILLE PD AL WYNTOR who passed away last NIGHT (7/5). WYNTOR rose to fame in the late 1980s as host of TNN-TV's "Video Morning" alongside KATIE HAAS and later hosted syndicated radio feature, "NASHVILLE INSIDER," on dozens of Country stations nationwide.
"My father was reunited with our Heavenly Father in HEAVEN last NIGHT," said WYNTOR's son CHRIS RUSLEY via FACEBOOK. "I thank JESUS for opening His arms wide open and accepting him into His eternal home. Although I'm saddened by his passing, it brings me great joy knowing he was a great man that lived his life for the Lord, loved his family, and made a difference in countless number of people's lives. I'll forever miss his laughter and the way my kids reacted to his silliness and his antics. I was blessed to have him as my father and being able to call him 'Dad.'" No arrangements have been announced yet.
