Lou Faust dead at 84


Long-time national rep and local radio GM Lou Faust has died at age 84 in Boise, ID. Faust had been GM of WPAT-AM & FM NYC and what is now KISS-FM Los Angeles. But much of his long radio career was as a rep in NYC with companies now consigned to history – John Blair and Radio One. He was also a station broker and rep for music syndication.

“Lou trained a legion of Salesmen and Sales managers along the way. Tall, ramrod straight, grey haired early, known as the Eagle. Bright—scrupulously honest, hard working, a product of the ’30s depression. Known to have a couple of adult beverages before hitting the commuter train—hearty laugh.  We’re going to miss you, Louie, the Good Lord only built one of you then threw away the mold,” said Frank Boyle in an email informing us of his friend’s death.
