Condolences to family and friends of former radio station and tower owner ROBERT LESSNER, who died JULY 15th in WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY, according to the POUGHKEEPSIE JOURNAL.
LESSNER, a former sound engineer on TV and films, and his brother owned BEACON BROADCASTING CORP., licensee of WBNR-A/BEACON, NY, WSPK (K104)/POUGHKEEPSIE, WENE-A and WMRV-A-F/BINGHAMTON, and WTHT/PORTLAND, ME. The radio stations were sold in 1994 but the company retained the MT. BEACON transmitter site in the HUDSON VALLEY. K104 listeners also heard LESSNER on MARK BOLGER's morning show as "WORD BUILDER BOB."
