We’re gonna need a bigger floatie.
Stan Brooks of 1010 WINS in New York City was the first radio reporter I ever worked with who was always, always a gentleman. When he filed a story you knew it was done by a tried and true journalist who understood Big Apple politics and power brokers like no other. Last week, Mayor Bloomberg named the radio room at City Hall after the veteran newsman, whose wife, Lynn, died from cancer — the wretched disease which would also take his life.
The airwaves are lessened by your absence, Mr. Brooks. May your colleagues carry on your legacy; your audience will miss your reporting, and your voice.
And I will miss your good humor, your laugh, and your singularly New York kindness that helped a PR noob get his bearings straight.
Rest in peace, good sir.
