"He went from there to writing for International Showtime. When that show was dropped, he went to work at all-News WINS as an editor. Three years later he was transferred to KFWB when it went all news. He later became News Director when I became Managing Editor. Bruce left KFWB and went to KDKA/TV-Pittsburgh, another Westinghouse property. Later he returned to Los Angeles and KNBC. Later he was transferred to WRC/TV in Washington DC, then he became the Far East Bureau Chief for NBC stationed in Tokyo. He left NBC and formed his own news gathering operation called Globenet. Failing health caused him to return to Los Angeles about five years ago. Bruce was one hell of a journalist, one hell of a man. I've known him since we worked together at WINS and I feel my long time friendship with Bruce was one of the highlights of my life." Greg Tantum, former KFWB Executive Editor and Program Director remembered Bruce. "He loved talking about KFWB and his love for the team during those early years of the format burned brightly. While it made me feel proud to be part of such a legacy it also served as an incredible challenge to create [re-create] the tight family environment in which the early team worked and played." Bruce died of kidney failure on March 19, 1999. He was 60.

Robert W. has burrowed his way into a magical place as the quintessential morning man over the decades in Los Angeles radio, beginning in the mid-1960s. It wasn't always that way. "I decided that being a disc jockey was a lot more fun than spending the rest of my life in a courtroom." The world may have lost a lawyer, but it gained arguably one of the top three morning jocks during the second half of this century. Robert, born in Mansfield, Ohio on July 23, 1942, was the original morning "Boss Jock" at the Drake/Chenault-consulted "93/KHJ." "I knew I was destined to be in radio when I realized my parents’ initials were AM and FM (Arthur and Florence Morgan)." He arrived in Southern California from KEWB-San Francisco. In 1967, Billboard published that Robert was voted 5th most popular disc jockey and the best in morning drive. During this time, he and his fellow jocks were surprised by a poll taken at one of the Teenage Fairs. "They asked the kids who they were most influenced by. Disc jockeys came in third behind parents and teachers. It stunned all of us. My job had always been a question of just having fun. After that, I became more responsible. I think it placed subconscious pressure on us." Robert hosted ABC's In Concert series, the Helen Reddy Show and KHJ/Channel 9's Groovy program. His morning signature at KHJ was "Zap, You're Morganized," which meant that one belonged to a very exclusive club. Even adults found it exhilarating to be "Morganized" as some kind of rite of passage. He made a personality out of his engineer "Fail Safe," manipulating him to the cover of a weekly "Boss 30" survey. In 1970, Robert left KHJ for an opportunity at WIND-Chicago. Wolfman Jack, who was hotter than a pistol at the time, was a guest on his last show. Robert called Wolfman Dick Whittinghill in obvious tribute to the long-running KMPC morning man. The irony of his reference to Whittinghill wouldn't be felt immediately. When he signed off he thanked Bill Drake, the Big Kahuna, and played Frank Sinatra's recording of the Rod McKuen song A Few More Cities. After the Windy City experience, Morgan returned to KHJ in 1972. In October of 1975, a once-in-a-generation job opened at KMPC, and Robert took it. His first assignment was a split shift on Sundays, as well as back-stopping KMPC sports events and filling in for the weekday staff. His move to KMPC seemed strange on the surface. There must have been a hidden agenda or a promise of a shift in order for the superstar morning man to settle for a Sunday split shift. Robert told James Brown of the LA Times that there were no promises when he joined KMPC. A few people did wonder how he'd handle the situation, but he said that he adjusted before he got there. To signal the new era, after 30 years of "Whittinghill in the Morning," Robert became the new morning drive personality on August 6, 1979. He started his first morning with Gene Autry blasting out Back in the Saddle Again. "I've worked every shift known to radio at KMPC but I like this the best. I've always thought of myself as a morning man." Robert has also hosted a number of syndicated radio shows, including "Record World" and "Robert W. Morgan's Special of the Week," which was syndicated by Watermark. While at "Magic 106" his morning partners were Joni Caryl and St. Louis sports guy Scott St. James, who moved to "Magic" from KMPC. By 1992, all the "Boss Radio" fans were listening to "K-Earth 101" and Robert's morning move to the Oldies station seemed like a seamless decision and a very comfortable fit. In early 1994, Robert was inducted into the National Broadcasters Hall of Fame. In 1993 he received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "Unfortunately the Star is in storage until MetroLink finishes construction on Hollywood Blvd." In late May 1997, Robert announced that he had lung cancer, perhaps due to being a two-pack-a-day smoker for 35 years before quitting in 1996. In an emotional on-air statement he said he was taking some time off work to fight the disease full time. He retired from KRTH on January 9, 1998, with a three-hour on-air tribute from the Museum of TV & Radio broadcast live. Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, who announced that a city street will be named after Morgan, was part of the festivities. Robert was presented with a replica of the Hollywood Boulevard Star that bears his name. On hand: Dick Clark, Chuck Blore, Coach John Robinson, Ernest Borgnine, movie critic David Sheehan, and Let’s Make a Deal’s Monty Hall. Industry peers including Gene Chenault, Ed Arnold, Frank Terry, Bill Ward, Ken Levine, Shotgun Tom Kelly, Jay Coffey, Bill Pearl, Sharon Katchen, Bobby Ocean and Charlie Tuna. The event was MC’ed by Joni Caryl and Gary Owens. Robert passed away May 22, 1998. He was 60.
