Former KGO/KSFO Talk Host Lee Rodgers Dies


Longtime Bay Area broadcaster Lee Rodgers has died. Rodgers was having heart issues and actually died on the operating table last night, having his heart operated on. In a blog post, his wife Susan wrote, "He died like he lived.  He was brave to take the chances of a risky surgery and thanked his surgeons prior to beginning to try to find a way to extend his 'used-by' date."

His former partner Melanie Morgan told Radio Ink last night, "Lee Rodgers was wickedly funny and one of the industry's most exceptional entertainers. He was always brutally honest, a proudly principled conservative, and never backed away from a fight."

Two days ago 37 years ago I married a wonderful man. He was an amazing individual who was caring, tough, but fair and faced life with an indomitable spirit. He was the love of my life. As I sit here looking at the mountain where his ashes have been strewn I am remembering all the hard and wonderful we spent together. My heart will always carry the pain of loss for such a brilliant and loving individual. Thank you, Lee. You and I have a love that transcends space and time.

Lee was irreplaceable, irreverent, brutally honest, and the kindest of persons. I have missed him and thought of him daily since his death. I wish for the best of all lives to his wife, Susan.
