Indiana Owner Blair Trask Dies


In what Indiana RadioWatch described as unexpected, radio station owner Blair Trask, known for properties in Kentucky and in the Hoosier State, passed away Thursday (11/22) at the age of 60.

The newsletter produced by Blaine Thompson first reported the news late Sunday, noting that Trask worked at, co-owned, or operated via an LMA such stations as WMJL-AM 1500 in Marion, Ky., and what was then-known as WAVG-AM 970 in Louisville, Ky. Other stations associated with Trask include AMs and FMs in Seymour, Jeffersonville, Paoli, Austin and Hardinsburg.

Services will be held Tuesday (11/27) at 11am at Voss Funeral Service, 316 N. Chestnut St., Seymour, IN 47274.

Visitation was scheduled at Voss for today (11/26) until 8pm and on Tuesday from 9am until the service.

A graveside service will be held at Cave Hill Cemetery, 2395 Grindstead Drive, Louisville, KY 40204 on Tuesday at 2:30pm.

Engineer Bob Hawkins said to Thompson, “Anyone who worked closely with Blair Trask knows that a friendship was inevitable … he was just that kind of guy. We met in late 1989 when he was working with Charlie Jenkins’ Sunnyside Communications. On a personal level, I asked Blair to be my best man at my 2003 wedding and he accepted. My loss is far more than just professional. I am confident that those of us who stay ready to meet our Lord will have the pleasure of talking radio with him when the roll is called up yonder.”
