    In 1962 Kirby signed on with KATU Channel 2 as Director of Agricultural Programming, the station’s first weatherman, and he was the first voice to come over the air. He also hosted KATU’s talk shows: “Good Morning,” “Midday,” “Down to Earth,” and “Youth in Agriculture.” He left K2 in 1974.

    Talented man.

    He would eventually interview my parents because of their background as clowns serving in hospitals.

    RIP Kirby.
