Famed L.A. radio personality Cliff Winston died this week of an apparent heart attack, it was reported. Winston served as a funny man for KKBT The Beat in the 90s and  subsequently program director for KJLH. No details were reported as of press time of any illness Winston may have had.

Colleague and long time friend of Winston, Kev Ross wrote: I

“I am incredibly disappointed and sad to report this as it hits close to home. Cliff Winston was a true industry friend who was often a mentor to me on several occasions during my industry career. He was a true jock and programmer who made an incredible contribution to the industry. I met him when I worked at KKBT during the legendary days in the early 90s when it was the hottest station in the country and Cliff always had great jokes and I learned a lot from him about delivery and the industry. The last time I saw him was at the KJLH reunion a couple of years ago and I literally just asked John Monds about him yesterday. He passed today from a massive heart attack and he will be missed. RIP Cliff…”

Condolences can be left on Winston’s Facebook page.
