A man whose deep voice greeted thousands of radio listeners across western North Dakota each day has died.
Edward John Williams – known on the air as John Williams – died today after a long battle with cancer.
Williams worked at KCJB Radio in Minot for more than 40 years beginning in 1959.
His news reporting also went to television – working on KXMC-TV for many years.
His career highlights included a trip to Viet Nam to report on local boys fighting in that war.
He was given the North Dakota Broadcasters Association Pioneer Award in 1999, a year before he retired.
Perhaps the most iconic phrase that John Williams uttered came at the end of every noon newscast when he would say, “See you tomorrow.”
John Williams, dead at the age of 84.
