Condolences to family and friends of former CBS News KNX-A/LOS ANGELES marketing director FRED BERGENDORFF, who died SUNDAY after a long illness in BREA, CA at 63.
BERGENDORFF retired from KNX in 2002; he also served as creator and host of independent KDOC-TV/ANAHEIM-LOS ANGELES' "THE PET PLACE," a show featuring pets needing to be adopted, which more recently added a radio version on MOUNT WILSON FM BROADCASTERS' Talk KGIL-A.
ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER radio columnist GARY LYCAN produced the pet shows, which continue with different hosts, for BERGENDORFF. "FRED's goal was to find homes for all the adoptable animals," said LYCAN on the shows' website, "and it was FRED's desire that it would be his legacy and our goal to continue his rewarding work to help shelters and rescue groups throughout SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. And that is our plan."
