Former Broadcasters Foundation executive and previous president of Eastman Radio Carl Butrum was a longtime close friend of Bill Burton's; they worked together at Eastman Radio for many years. "Bill?s influence inspired countless individuals in the radio business," Butrum said. "Radio owes Bill our gratitude for his wisdom and for imparting to us his boundless positive attitude, which infected everyone who came into contact with him. We mourn his loss, but remember the great man with the Bill Burton Memorial Fund.?
Burton started his radio career at Eastman Radio, eventually leading the rep firm as its president and chairman. Donations to the Bill Burton Memorial Fund are being accepted at the Broadcasters Foundation website at http://www.broadcastersfoundation.org/, by calling 212-373-8250, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Burton passed away last Saturday as a result of head injuries suffered from a fall at his home. He was 85.
