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.”
