George Nicholaw, the former general manager of Los Angeles newsradio station KNX, died at his home Saturday after being hospitalized with an infection. He was 86.
Nicholaw started his career at a radio station in Salinas, Calif.
“Nicholaw was there on day one, when KNX flipped to all-news in 1968,” said Don Barrett, editor at LARadio.com, which first reported news of Nicholaw’s death.
Nicholaw served as general manager of KNX from 1968-2003.
