The staff at KUZZ is mourning the sudden death of long-time afternoon deejay Chris Conner. Former News Director Mark Howell had worked with Conner since they both joined the staff in the 70’s, and remembers Conner as an old school, high energy radio personality on air and a great guy off mic as well, saying Conner was always upbeat and dedicated to doing a good job on air and in the commercials he produced. Conner, whose real name is Brad Fergon, was an Army veteran who served in Korea before turning to a radio career. He passed Tuesday morning after a sudden illness. The photo on the left below is Chis in the KUZZ studios, the photo on the right is with the late KUZZ founder Buck Owens, both pictures are undated. Chris Conner was 70.
