Lou Waters

The name Lou Waters is known around the country due to his long and successful tenure at CNN. However, Lou's outstanding career began in rock radio in the 60s, long before America watched him on CNN.

Bill Thayer brought Lou and Norm Flint to Tucson to help him develop and launch KWFM. Lou and Norman had a track record of creating great FM rock stations, having developed the format of KMPX San Francisco during the Summer of Love. They were also responsible for New York's WCBS-FM rock sound in 1969. With such talent, it's no wonder KWFM was an instant success.
