Veteran Boston radio host dies of cancer
BOSTON The most recognized voice of Boston talk radio for more than a quarter of a century has died. David Brudnoy was 64.He died shortly after six p-m Thursday at Massachusetts General Hospital, just one day after saying he would lose his battle with cancer. Brudnoy's voice could be heard every week night in 38 states and in Canada on W-B-Z A-M since 1986.
He had already lived with AIDS for nearly a decade, beating a viral infection that nearly took his life in 1994.
After fighting his first round with merkel-cell carcinoma last year, Brudnoy recovered and returned to the air in March. But he was hospitalized again this month. In a bedside interview Wednesday, he said the cancer had spread into his liver and kidneys and that he was ready to die.
