Broadcasters mourn loss of Hughes

Broadcast veteran Bill Hughes passed away last week in Sulphur Springs Texas at the age of 62.

Hughes career included On Air, management, and his true calling of broadcast engineering.   His career began in 1974 at KBOX in Dallas
He began his engineering career in 1985 in the East Texas area where he continued most of his career up until his death.

He took a brief hiatus from Texas in 1992 when he moved to Hawaii.   At the time Bill was contracted to build radio stations in China for the Chinese government and South China Broadcasting.   He chose to move to Hawaii so he could commute to China because he refused not to have residence in the United States.

He returned to Texas in 1998 where he continued his broadcast engineering career primarily with the East Texas Radio group.   Hughes was a very active and proud member of the Society of Broadcast Engineers.

Hughes is survived by a sister Judy Williamson of McKinney Texas and several nieces and nephews.
