OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Don Wallace, a beloved and legendary luminary of Oklahoma radio and television, has died.

It is with great sadness that we report news of Don’s death.

He started at WKY Radio in Oklahoma City in 1958, and then in 1965 began his popular outdoor show for WKY TV. WKY Radio was one of the oldest radio stations in Oklahoma, and WKY TV was the first TV station in Oklahoma City.
