Country Radio Hall of Famer and former McKenzie River KKNU/Eugene, OR morning host Bill Barrett passed away yesterday (8/17) at the age of 72 following a battle with cancer. He spent 23 years with KKNU and more than 44 in the market before retiring in early 2021 (CAT 1/7/21). Barrett launched his career at the University of Wyoming’s KUWR/Laramie, WY and spent eight months with Oldies KLOK-AM/San Jose before making the move to Eugene, OR. He was inducted into the CRHoF in 2018 alongside co-hosts Tim Fox and Tracy Berry; read Country Aircheck’s profile of Barrett, Fox & Berry upon their induction here. “This entire community is grieving his loss,” share former co-hosts Fox and Berry. “The outpouring of warm well-wishes and stories of his impact are flooding local TV news, our social media feeds and our phone lines. There are no ‘thoughts and prayers’ posts; all of them are paragraphs long describing Bill’s impact on their lives and families.” No word on services.
