East Coast broadcasters will recognize the name of this esteemed radio vet, who passed away Thursday (11/8) at his Florida home. Before capping his long career with a turn at consulting, Perry was a corporate executive for Chase Broadcasting and RKO General, and general manager for a number of those companies’ properties.
Editor’s Remembrance: Perry and I became good friends when he managed WTIC and I managed WHCN in Hartford. I’ll always be grateful for his attempts to turn me from a precocious kid into a competent leader. I recently reconnected with a mutual friend who gave me Perry’s contact information, but I never got the chance to catch up with him. I regret not being able to thank him for all he did for me.
