Condolences to family and friends of former RADIO AND RECORDS WASHINGTON Bureau Chief and CNN investigative reporter PAT CLAWSON, who died THURSDAY (10/29) at 60, a week short of his 61st birthday.
CLAWSON, who most recently lived in SWARTZ CREEK, MI, near FLINT, had a widely varied career, including work at RADIO AMERICA, NBC NEWS RADIO, and TV's INDEPENDENT NETWORK NEWS. He also worked in politics as a campaign manager and ran as the LIBERTARIAN PARTY candidate for the MICHIGAN State Senate in 2010.
ALL ACCESS President & Publisher JOEL DENVER noted, "When PAT and I worked together at R&R, he was always a consummate professional about his work and radio. His desire to do what was right was his driving force. A kind and exuberant person, the only thing that every got under his skin was stupidity. PAT was easily one of the smartest people in any room. Most times you saw him, he was probably wearing his white cowboy hat -- as PAT was really one of the good guys."
A tribute to PAT's live is planned for FRIDAY (11/6) 6-9p (ET) at SHARP FUNERAL HOMES in SWARTZ CREEK, MI.
