We'll miss 2014 TN Radio Hall Of Fame Inductee
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
See Teddy's Induction Video HERE
Longtime Nashville broadcast personality Teddy Bart died at the age of 78 Saturday.
He was an author, a songwriter, a singer, a radio talk show host and a TV anchorman.
Bart came to this town for music and sang in Printer's Alley at night, writing songs by day.
His ability to entertain made him a natural broadcaster.
At WSM-AM and WSM-TV, he did it all. He hosted the noon show for television, the Waking Crew for radio and did an afternoon radio show. He worked morning, noon and night.
Bart went on to the Channel 4 anchor team, working the weekends, and hosting an interview show called Teddy Bart's Nashville.
Bart was inducted to the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame in 2014.
Teddy Bart's son sent Channel 4 the following statement:
Teddy Bart passed away Saturday, Dec. 20th, 2014. His body has been cremated and all usable organs have been donated.
It is Teddy's expressed wish that there be no memorial or visitation service in his honor. He wished to be remembered for the work he has done.
If you wish to make a contribution in his honor, Teddy requested that you make a donation to Sanctuary Farm Everlasting Care for Animals, P.O. Box l57, Lovingston, VA 22949. Send the donation care of Jody Bart. (Teddy's daughter.) Online at http://sanctuaryfarmeverlastingcare.com
Teddy asked the following message be posted after his death:
“I lived the life I dreamed of living. My love goes to all who shared that life with me. A bit of rest, and I'll be back to learn more. May God bless you all.”
