Condolences to family and friends of longtime NEW YORK CITY radio personality BILL BROWN, who died SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9th after a long illness. He was 69. BROWN was best known for his long run at WCBS-F/NEW YORK, through several formats.
MEDIABISTRO wrote, "When CBS-F launched a freeform rock format in 1969, BROWN with his signature deep voice was hired. In 1972, when the station flipped to Oldies, BROWN adjusted. He would remain a constant at CBS-F until the bitter end in 2005 when the 'JACK' format took over."
Former CBS-F PD JOE MCCOY told MEDIABISTRO, "He was a consummate pro. He was always a great jock, one of those guys like myself and MAX KINKEL who came up through the [BILL] DRAKE system. He really knew how to be a good format jock. He really knew what to say in the least amount of words possible."
