Tribute to KASU's June Taylor

Jayaprakash Veeramreddy
KASU Graduate Assistant

Click on the Listen button for a tribue to KASU's June Taylor.  A memorial service for June will be held on Wednesday, February 5 from two to four in the Grand Hall of the Fowler Center.  At 3 p.m., there will be a time for sharing memories and reflections of June. We will share photos and some audio clips, read comments that have been collected from friends and former students, and open the floor to any in attendance who would like to share. We hope that many friends, members of the A-State community, and alumni will be able to attend. The clock tower of the Dean B. Ellis Library on the A-State campus will be specially lit in her honor on the evening of February 5. June passed away on January 12, after a long battle with cancer.

Johnathan Reaves is the News Director for KASU Public Radio. As part of an Air Force Family, he moved to Arkansas from Minot, North Dakota in 1986. He was first bitten by the radio bug after he graduated from Gosnell High School in 1992. While working on his undergraduate degree, he worked at KOSE, a small 1,000 watt AM commercial station in Osceola, Arkansas. Upon graduation from Arkansas State University in 1996 with a degree in Radio-Television Broadcast News, he decided that he wanted to stay in radio news. He moved to Stuttgart, Arkansas and worked for East Arkansas Broadcasters as news director and was there for 16 years.
