April 6, 2009 at 8:15 AM (PT)
Veteran broadcaster HOWARD CLARK, who settled in SHREVEPORT after a career that spanned from coast to coast, died early TODAY (4/6) after a sudden bout with lung cancer, reports THE SHREVEPORT TIMES. He was 70. "HOWARD was only diagnosed a week ago," said friend and fellow broadcaster DANI COATES, who until recently worked with CUMULUS/SHREVEPORT.
Stations Clark worked at in a career that covered the better part of five decades ranged from WKY/OKLAHOMA CITY, WTIX/NEW ORLEANS and KFRC and KYA/SAN FRANCISCO to WWDJ/HACKENSACK, NJ and a large handful of SHREVEPORT stations, including KVKI, KEEL/KITT/KVKI, KSYR and KLKL.
CLARK retired from broadcasting in 2006, telling friends "it was a fun ride but it's time to do nothing and enjoy LAKE HIGHLAND in LOUISIANA."
Funeral and memorial services are pending, COATES said.
