Condolences to family and friends of former FLORIDA station owner BOB WEEKS, who died THURSDAY (3/11) at 83 in SARASOTA.
WEEKS, who started on the air at WDAE-A/TAMPA, moved into sales and then ownership as a partner with real estate developer JIM WALTER in WALTER-WEEKS BROADCASTING, which owned stations in WEST PALM BEACH, DAYTONA BEACH, SARASOTA, and TALLAHASSEE. After selling the stations in the '80s, WEEKS, with RON CRIDER and THOMAS MCCOY, bought WQSA-A/SARASOTA and partnered with CRIDER to buy cell phone towers.
He is survived by wife SYLVIA, four children, and six grandchildren. Services are being held TODAY at 10a at PALMS-ROBARTS FUNERAL HOME in SARASOTA.
