Shreveport Loses Long Time Radio Personality Danny Fox
It is with a sad heart that we report that Shreveport has lost a long time, much loved radio personality. Danny Fox aka Kenneth Wayne Grimes was a voice that graced the area’s airwaves for decades.
During his radio career, he was heard primarily on the Home of the Legends AM 1130 KWKH, was the past program director of KITT-FM, now KXKS, Kiss Country 937, and continued on on air doing traffic as Lane Changer, Rocky Roads and the Tuff and Buff Traffic Guy on K945, 96.5 KVKI, Kiss Country 937 and News Radio 710 KEEL. When the building for our stations was originally built along the side of I-20 off of the Pines Road exit, it was understood that Danny was a part of the foundation. He was a part of our radio family and so much more. Later, Danny saw that digital was the future and enjoyed building and designing webpages for Townsquare Media and others, including the website for Operation Santa Claus and multiple local businesses.
For those who knew Danny personally, you know that he always had a smile and joke ready to go. He never minded taking time out of his busy day for a chat. He loved posting Obama jokes online and was even restricted from Facebook for a while as result. He never seemed to have a bad day. Danny had an infectious laugh that drew you in and everything was always ‘super duper, fine and dandy!’ His other favorite phrase was ‘damn sho is now!’ and he always referred to Bossier as ‘Bossier Get Down Boogie City.’ He was such a colorful man! He was also an avid musician and played bass until his health no longer allowed him to.
Danny might have been small in stature, but he had a big voice and an even bigger heart. Danny was a father, a husband, a dear friend, an animal lover and a master of Photoshop. You will be missed our friend. Please leave your favorite memory of Danny below to share with his family and friends in their time of need.
