Condolences to family and friends of HUBBARD News WTOP/WASHINGTON Entertainment Editor JOE BARBER, who the station reports died of natural causes TODAY (9/19) at 53 at his home in northwest WASHINGTON, DC. BARBER, who joined the station in 1997, was heard with movie reviews on FRIDAYS and with entertainment news on SATURDAY mornings.
"JOE was a warm, funny presence in the WTOP newsroom every Saturday," said WTOP VP of News and Programming JIM FARLEY. "He loved movies, the stage and music. You could ask him about any movie; he was a walking encyclopedia of movie knowledge and trivia. He will be truly missed by his co-workers and all WTOP listeners."
