Siegel, Joel: KPPC, 1970-71; KMET, 1971. Joel was best known for his entertaining movie reviews on ABC’s Good Morning America for a quarter of a century.

He died June 29, 2007 of colon cancer. He was 63. This was not the first time that cancer was in Joel’s life. In 1982, Joel’s wife Jane died from brain cancer when she was 31. Joel broadcast news on KPPC and had a weekly program, “Uncle Noel’s Mystery Theatre” during its “underground” radio period. A native of East Los Angeles, he graduated cum laude from UCLA. He had an eclectic early life. On a 20/20 segment on the evening of his passing, they devoted its final segment to Joel’s life. “I’m really proud that I knew Martin Luther King and even more he knew me,” said Joel from an earlier interview. His friendship with King and his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s was an example of “standing up for what’s right.” Jeff Gonzer remembered that Joel had this enormous collection of old radio dramas, comedies and serials. “He started me using ‘Chandu the Magician,’ that I ran every morning on my show at KPPC [1970-71]. Then he began his Uncle Joel's Comedy Hour, a weekend show that featured old radio comedy shows from the 40s and 50s. Also on the weekends he would host Uncle Noel's Mystery Hour and run spookie and mystery shows from the same era. After we all were fired from KPPC I moved to KMET and Joel did too, as the newsman. On August 1, 1972, Joel joined WCBS/TV-New York and four years later became the entertainment critic at WABC/TV-New York. In 1996, Joel found someone else he hoped to grow old with. She got pregnant, he got cancer. In 2004 he wrote a book to his five year-old son called Lessons for Dylan, a "just in case" autobiography and tutorial for his son. At his book publication party he told his friends, “I’m glad to be there and to quote George Burns, I’m glad to be anywhere.” He continued working almost until the end of his life without losing his cheerful personality and trademark wit, wrote a colleague on the network's Web site. The 20/20 tribute piece concluded with: “Joel never complained. He always had a warm smile. He will be an inspiration.”

Sigmon, Loyd: KMPC. Loyd devised a system to make it easy for the police to alert radio stations. The system gave each radio station a special receiver tuned to a specific frequency and attached to a tape recorder. A dispatcher at LAPD headquarters could press one button to activate all the machines and announce the nature of the problem. "What I had in mind was to get more listeners for KMPC, to be honest with you," said Sigmon. When the LAPD broadcast the first SigAlert on Sept. 5, 1955, the announcement caused even more trouble than the accident that had precipitated it. A train en route from Union Station to Long Beach had derailed downtown, rolling onto its side. When the LAPD sent out a plea for doctors and nurses in the area through the new system, so many responded that they created a traffic jam themselves. Born in Stigler, Oklahoma in 1910, Loyd was the son of a cattle rancher, educated at Wentworth Military Academy and got a ham radio license at age 14. He started his radio career at WEEI-Boston and KCMO-Kansas City. Loyd spent three years in Europe during World War II where he was officer in charge of radio communications for the European Theater where Colonel Sigmon directed building of the world's largest mobile transmitter, 60,000 watts. Prior to selling his interest in Golden West, Loyd was it’s corporation's executive vp, with Gene Autry ran a number of radio stations and KTLA/Channel 5, was vp of operations at KMPC and was part of the acquisitions of the California Angels. The California Highway Patrol took over responsibility for the freeways in 1969, and with that the SigAlert system as well. And though most radio stations now get information about SigAlerts from the CHP Web site, the name has remained - striking terror and dread in the hearts of L.A. drivers. Loyd died June 2, 2004, at the age of 95.

He starred as Jason, opposite Dame Judith Anderson, in the Honolulu production of Medea; he was the two-time winner of the Associated Press, Golden Mike Award for excellence in broadcast journalism.
