Morton Downey, Jr., the "Father of TV Trash Talk," known for his abrasive, in-your-face style. When he was fired from his radio talk show at KFBK in Sacramento, CA, in 1984 it was Rush Limbaugh who took his place. I met and worked with him when starting to work in radio in Washington D.C. during his brief weekend stint at WWDC. From a privileged family he grew up next door to the Kennedy family in Hyannis Port, MA. His best friend growing up was Ted Kennedy. Wow! The stories he could tell!
