Unlike most of us in the radio biz Kevin Ohl was not a swaggering attention whore. He was very funny in a natural unassuming way and quietly made a great contribution to the broadcasting business. His passing must not go unnoticed.
Kev was a dear old friend and I miss him. Here is his obit as published in this month's VAB News letter. KEVIN OHL 1960 - 2012
Longtime Vermont radio personality Kevin Ohl passed away May 29 at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington after a long and Coura-Geous battle with acute leukemia. He was 51.
A native of Essex Junction, Kevin tried his hand in Hollywood for a brief time, but returned to Vermont where he worked as a disc jockey at WQCR-FM (which became WOKO-FM while he was there) in Burlington. He later served as the morning man on WVMX-FM in Stowe (now WCVT-FM). Afterwards, he worked for WKDR-AM in Burlington, where he was a long-time contributor and producer of “The Manno and Condon Show.” Kevin was also the producer of “The Mark Johnson Show.”
His quick wit and his concern for others will not be forgot-ten by his many friends.
He is survived by his parents and a sister and her family. A celebration of his life will be held at 11 a.m. on June 9 at Corbin & Palmer Funeral Home at 9 Pleasant St. in Essex Junction. Dress is casual and Hawaiian shirts are encouraged.
