KCBS-AM reports that longtime anchor Mike Pulsipher was found dead in his home in San Francisco on Friday. He was 61.
He was discovered at the bottom of a staircase, and it’s not clear if he died in the fall or may have suffered a heart attack, KCBS said.
Before he retired because of health problems two and a half years ago, Pulsipher had enjoyed a 40-year career in radio news. He worked at KFBK in Sacramento before joining CBS as an anchor and reporter at KNX Radio in Los Angeles.
Pulsipher worked at KCBS twice, starting as the afternoon news anchor in the 80s, with a tour of duty in New York as an anchor for the CBS Radio network news in between.
KCBS, in its announcement about his death, noted that Pulsipher “loved radio news, truly enjoyed sharing information with listeners, and was extremely proud of his career with CBS and KCBS.”
He leaves two grown children, Melissa and Jeff, and an older brother, Vince.
