The NORTHWEST BROADCASTERS site and Adult Standards KIXI-A/SEATTLE are reporting the passing of former SEATTLE radio personality JACK MORTON last week. MORTON was the afternoon host at KVI-A in the '70s, and later worked at KIXI; he also worked at KOL-A/SEATTLE and KMO-A/TACOMA.
At KIXI's site, OM DAN MURPHY wrote, "We have lost a true talent and a singular personality. Jack’s sense of humor was infectious, although he’d probably say something like 'yes, and there’s a cream for that infection'.... JACK MORTON was one of the reasons I continued in radio and I was fortunate to work with him and learn from him at KVI. More than 20 years later we were fortunate to be able to bring JACK back on KIXI for a couple of years. He enjoyed his time on KIXI and we were far the richer for his presence. Personally I was privileged to call JACK a friend, and I will miss him dearly."
