Alan Kornish dead at 74


Long time WARM-AM Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA General Manager Alan Kornish has died. He was 74.

Kornish helmed “The Mighty 590” for many years under then-owner Susquehanna Broadcasting.

“While personalities heard on a radio station get the bulk of recognition, people behind the scenes also make a great radio station. WARM had a succession of very good general managers who helped guide the station through the business waters. One was Alan Kornish. The secret of Kormish’s success at WARM was that he let his people under him manage. There was some direction but he let the ideas fly,” said a blog post by former WARM staffer David Yonki, who runs the 590 Forever WARM Radio blog.

A wake has already taken place and the funeral for Kornish, who died last Thursday (1/6), was Sunday.
