OSWEGO, N.Y. -- Former WRVO general manager and 2010 Syracuse Press Club Wall of Distinction honoree John Krauss died yesterday, June 17. He was 64.

WRVO says Krauss was one of the station's longest serving administrators, holding a varitety of different managerial roles in 40 years. He was general manager for 14 years and retired in 2010.Krauss began his career at WRVO in 1969, the day the station signed on the air at SUNY Oswego.

According to a statement posted on their website, WRVO GM Michael Ameigh said, “It would be impossible to overstate John’s contribution to the growth of WRVO over the years. When he took over as general manager WRVO had five full-time staff members. At the time of his retirement the staff numbered 17."

The statement continued: “John’s foresight in applying a decade ago for additional repeaters to fill voids in WRVO’s signal coverage, particularly in the Mohawk Valley and southern Finger Lakes, will result in additional coverage.”The Syracuse Press Club Board of Directors offers our condolences to the Krauss family and the staff at WRVO-FM. <
