North Bay: Doug Smith, 1959-2005
AP reports Smith died from injuries suffered when his motorcycle failed to negotiate a curve on River Road near the Korbel Winery. Witnesses told CHP Smith was crossing double yellow lines and passing vehicles at speeds up to 90 miles per hour.
KRSH program director Dean Kattari said Smith's was "the best morning show I've ever heard." The station's website at www.krsh.com has set up a tribute page.
Doug Smith is survived by his wife, Tina. He was 46.
