We note the passing of former Trustee, Warren G. Bodow, who served on the Board from 1997-2000.
As one-time president and general manager of New York’s classical music station, WQXR, Mr. Bodow helped the Board on building corporate and media relationships and worked closely with Managing Director, Paul Rosenblum, on Caramoor’s advertising campaigns – both in print on the large transit platform posters and on radio. While at WQXR, Mr. Bodow was an enthusiastic supporter of live broadcasts from Caramoor, which have again been heard on that station during recent seasons. Our sympathies to his wife Ellen and family.
Please see the full notice from The New York Times from January 1, 2017 (below) and a 2012 article from Cultural Weekly about his “Second Act.” (Photo from the Cultural Weekly article.)
BODOW–Warren G., 77, of New York and Tucson, on December 23, 2016, at his home in Manhattan. Devoted husband of 53 years to Ellen, wonderful father to Steve and Jon. Warren was president and general manager of NYC radio stations WQXR and WQEW for more than 15 years. He then launched a second career as a playwright, with several works produced professionally in New York and Arizona. Besides his wife and sons, he is also survived by four grandchildren and five siblings. A graveside funeral was held on December 26, and a memorial service will follow later this winter. Donations may be made to the Lymphoma Research Foundation; the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona; or to a scholarship fund in his name at the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
