Tony Blankley, who spoke as a conservative voice on KCRW’s weekly Left Right and Center roundtable, died Jan. 7 after fighting stomach cancer. He was 63. “Tony was a gentleman, a thinker, and a fiercely intelligent voice for KCRW,” said Jennifer Ferro, g.m. “Tony believed in the concept of the show and proved that dialogue between differing views is not only possible but can be productive. We will miss his insight, his wit, his intelligence and his willingness to listen as well as talk.” Blankley was also a regular on The McLaughlin Group, and provided political analysis on NPR.
