Condolences to family and friends of longtime CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WFLA-A/TAMPA newsman DON RICHARDS, who died FRIDAY afternoon of cancer while in hospice care at 65. RICHARDS joined WFLA in 1988 and became News Director in 1991; he previously worked in the market at WPLP-A (now WTBN-A) and also worked at WTAG-A/WORCESTER during an over 40 year career.
The station reports that OM GABE HOBBS called RICHARDS a "consummate professional" and "one of the best news writers I have ever worked with, and he would never put a bad product on the radio."
