MINNEAPOLIS radio personality MARK O'CONNELL died SATURDAY at age 52 from complications of melanoma. O'CONNELL joined KSTP Radio in 1998 as part of the "BABS AND THE BOYS" show.
Co-host RON ROSENBAUM said, "MARK was a radio professional from head to toe. He was a stand-up guy in a business that wasn't always like that. He wasn't a screamer or yeller; he was a guy who called it as he saw it."
GINNY HUBBARD MORRIS, President of HUBBARD BROADCASTING's radio operations, agreed: "At the very heart of MARK was his professional integrity as a top-notch newsperson with a curiosity about the world that was very unique."
