Longtime Omaha radio personality Steve Brown died over the weekend at the age of 68.
Brown died Saturday afternoon at his home, apparently as he was preparing his weekly afternoon talk show on KFAB.
Brown had been a staple of Omaha radio since the late 1950s and was credited with helping launch a number of radio careers. He was part of the Star Stations group in the early 1960s that helped lead the trend of rock music stations, including KOIL. He also hosted a talk show on KKAR.
Brown had recently been a regular part of weekend programing at KFAB for more than a year. He also occasionally filled in for other KFAB talk show hosts.
Services will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Heafey-Heafey-Hoffmann-Dworak at 7805 West Center Road.
