KCBS Anchors to Join Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame

bunger mcqueen KCBS Anchors to Join Bay Area Radio Hall of FameKCBS morning news anchor Stan Bunger is a Hall of Famer!

The Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame announced their 20-member class of 2010 today, and Bunger is one of only two inductees in the news category. The other is also from KCBS: former anchor Dave McQueen, who retired last year.

From the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame announcement:

“Stan Bunger – Yet another product of San Francisco State University, the respected morning news voice of KCBS first joined the station in 1982 at the age of 25, venturing out after ten years before returning to the station in 2000. Bunger has also worked at stations in San Jose, Sacramento, King City, Sonora and South Lake Tahoe during his career.”

“Dave McQueen – Authoritarian but understated, McQueen brought “network sound” to the decidedly underground KSAN at the height of its success. Later delivered the news on KNEW, KFRC, KKCY and KKSF before moving to KCBS, from which he retired in 2009.”

The Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame is sponsored by the Bay Area Radio Museum, in conjunction with the California Historical Radio Society and Broadcast Legends. This year’s group of 20 inductees will be celebrated at a gala gathering on Saturday, September 25, 2010, at the Doubletree Hotel and Executive Meeting Center on the Berkeley Marina.

    Congratulations to two of my favorite newscasters. I can’t think of two people more deserving of this honor. I was a devoted listener via the internet until live streaming was ended for international listeners.

    Congratulations Stan!

    Congrats to the both of them! I work at night and regularly listen to KCBS, so before his retirement, Dave McQueen was always someone I looked forward to hearing. While most of the graveyard crew is very good, he was one in a million, and it was a shame when he retired. Best of luck to the both of them!!

    Congrats to Stan & Dave. I’m glad Stan didn’t have to retire to earn it.
