Ken only spent five years in radio but says those were some of the most memorable years of his life, adding that as a 16-17 year-old kid, working for Karol Kelly (the boss at Zephyrhills’ WPAS) was delightful. When he left, she gave him an autographed 8x10 publicity photo from a shoot she did for the Jantzen swimsuit company.
After starting in radio part-time at WPAS in 1965, Ken moved to full time in 1966. Following high school graduation, he enrolled at the University of South Florida and got on the staff at WUSF-FM (1967-68). Later stints, related to college, included WOKA-AM and WDMG-AM in Douglas, GA (1968-69) and WLPR-FM in Mobile, AL (1969-70).
A freelance writer since 1988, Ken makes his home today (2014) in Virginia. He has written hundreds of feature articles and columns covering radio and television, satellite TV and amateur radio for several national consumer magazines, interviewed many of the industry’s top leaders, and reviewed dozens of new products in this field.
