WINS' Stan Brooks Dies At 86


For more than 50 years, Stan Brooks had been telling news stories on 1010 WINS. He never retired. 1010 WINS Director of News and Programming Ben Mevorach told Radio Ink last night, "He was the very essence of goodness, humility, and decency. His professional life was a testament to his belief that the story -- not the reporter -- was the star. There will never be another one like him. He was the station's very first news director when we flipped to all-news in April 1965, and though he stepped down a few years later to return to reporting, he was, and will forever be, the heart and soul of 1010 WINS." The CBS website has a very nice piece on Brooks' career and some great classic audio HERE
