Memorial fund established in honor of radio champion.

burton-billThe Broadcasters Foundation of America has established the Bill Burton Memorial Fund in honor of one of radio’s most enthusiastic boosters, known throughout the land for his exultation, “Be fabulous.” Burton died last Saturday from head injuries suffered from a fall at age 85. According to long-time Burton friend Carl Butrum, who worked with the honoree at Eastman Radio, “Bill’s influence inspired countless individuals in the radio business. Radio owes Bill our gratitude for his wisdom and for imparting to us his boundless positive attitude, which infected everyone who came into contact with him. We mourn his loss, but remember the great man with the Bill Burton Memorial Fund.”
