11/19/14 - KLCC lost one of our family. Natural World producer John Cooney has died. His family says, "John left us this morning with a taste of wine and a smile on his lips." John had lung cancer. He was at home surrounded by family.
10/30/14 - The KLCC family regrets to announce that our dear friend and long time volunteer John Cooney is currently in hospice care, and will no longer be creating Natural World segments.
John Cooney has been a vital part of KLCC since 1979. He has entertained listeners with the Natural World since 1999 but his legacy starts much earlier. Among other accomplishments, John was the creator and first host of "Straight Street" which remains one of KLCC's top music shows (Fridays 6:30 pm). He also created a long-running weekend program called "This Sunday Morning." John's life-long dedication to public radio is inspiring and his distinctive voice and commitment to quality programming and production will be terribly missed.
