Former Tulsa Personality Phil Stone Dies

11-24-2012

No explanation about how Stone (pictured here) died and the radio station he used to work at in Tulsa, KMOD-FM, is putting together a memorial. Stone's death was reported in the Tulsa World on Saturday. The "Phil and Brent Show" was heard on the station for 27 years before it ended in October (Brent is Brent Douglas).

KMOD Program Director Don Christi tells Radio Ink Stone's family is requesting privacy. "His legacy in this market is unequaled. Over 30 years at the helm of the KMOD Morning Zoo, over 27 of those with co-host Brent Douglas. The two of them known worldwide for their Roy D Mercer character. Dominant ratings winners up until their retirement two months ago. Biggest radio icon in Tulsa history and a huge loss to the KMOD family, Clear Channel Tulsa and his legion of fans."

He leaves behind five kids and three grandkids. Services are pending.
