In Memory of Curtis “Teddy Bear” Wofford

 

A special message to KUCR staff, listeners and fans:

It is with sincere regret and sadness that I inform you of the passing of popular former KUCR DJ and radio personality Curtis “Teddy Bear” Wofford. Teddy passed away last week on March 18th at Riverside Community Hospital, following an illness. He was a member of our broadcast family that made KUCR’s “Soul on Sunday” so popular in the Riverside area during his longtime involvement in the station, from the early ’80s to the mid-’90s. Teddy was a respected community volunteer at KUCR. He made a real contribution as a broadcaster over the airwaves on KUCR, as program host, producer, music coordinator, MC and Program Director. He knew the music well and brought it to the community with an unforgettable personality and style. He was a good and gifted man who was a joy to know and to work with. His passing is a real loss, deeply felt. We remember him now for the gift of his great talent and warm personality, with deep appreciation and gratitude. All condolences to his surviving family members.

With respect and deep sadness,

Louis Vandenberg

KUCR Director and General Manager
