Geoff contributed a piece for this blog. Most people probably know him as a game show host. He was also a radio star (back when there were such things), travel writer, author, and humorist.
We worked together at KMPC radio in Los Angeles. He was the 9-noon disc jockey and I was the lowly intern. But he always treated me as an equal. In many ways he was an inspiration to me because he didn’t have the classic radio baritone. But he had such personality and was such a terrific communicator that it didn’t stop him from getting plum jobs at some of the most prestigious major market radio stations in the country. He proved that having something to say was more important than just sounding mellifluous. That was my ticket too. Thanks, Geoff.
I’ll miss his sly humor, our lunches, his podcast, our friendship, and most of all his laugh. Geoff Edwards was a breath of fresh on-air.
