Jeff Brooks dead at 63


Business TalkRadio Network reports that talk host Jeff Brooks died Sunday following a long illness at age 63. Brooks had hosted "On the Road," which aired on 65 stations, and retired from the show only two months ago due to his illness. "Bobby Likis' Car Clinic" replaced On the Road on the network. Brooks had been a radio talk host for 32 years, the last 13 with BTRN.

"Jeff was one of the warmest, most genuine people you'd ever meet.  His incredible knowledge of cars and trucks and the way in which he delivered that information to listeners was a key element in his success.  All of us in the BTRN family will deeply miss him," said Jeff Weber, Executive Vice-President of the Business TalkRadio Network.
