Condolences to family and friends of longtime CBS RADIO News KCBS-A/SAN FRANCISCO news anchor AL HART, who died THURSDAY morning (1/14) at ALAMO, CA after a long illness at 88.
After stints as PD at crosstown KABL-A and KNBR-A, HART started at KCBS in 1966 as producer for DAVE MCELHATTON and stayed around for 34 years, retiring in 2000 but continuing to co-host JOHN MADDEN's "DAILY MADDEN" feature through 2009. HART also had been battling Corticobasal Degeneration for several years.
On a FACFEBOOK fan page, his wife PAT is quoted as saying, "AL died after a long illness. He died peacefully. He was the love of my life. He was 88. He never wanted to leave us. I was privileged to have his love."
