Condolences to family and friends of longtime CBS RADIO LOS ANGELES news anchor JACK POPEJOY, who has passed away after a battle with cancer at his home in SHERMAN OAKS, CA at 63.
POPEJOY was most recently morning co-anchor on News KNX-A alongside DICK HELTON and VICKY MOORE; he moved over to KNX when his longtime home, sister KFWB-A, flipped to Talk in FEBRUARY 2009. He was at KFWB in 1986-2009, and was morning news anchor there since 2000, also serving as webmaster.
His career started at WMEX-A/BOSTON and WPEN-A/PHILADELPHIA, and after a stint as a commercial jingle writer, he joined KIIS-A/LOS ANGELES, where he ultimately became PD. He then served as newscaster and PD at KPOL-A-F (later KPOL-A and KZLA), then moved to TV as a reporter/anchor at independent KCOP-TV.
