Broadcaster Stephen Trivers Passes at 83

Retired Fairfield Broadcasting president Stephen C. Trivers passed away on Monday (4/10) at 83 after an extended illness. Trivers’ business partner Bill Wertz writes: “He had a remarkable career spanning six decades. He started in Atlanta and worked with a young Bill Drake. His Susquehanna Broadcasting tenure started at WICE-AM in Providence, Rhode Island. That led to a promotion to the company headquarters in York, PA. He led the early FM expansion for the company with stations in Toledo, Cincinnati, Canton, and Indianapolis. He and I worked together in York for three years before starting our own Fairfield Broadcasting Company.” In the 1980s, Trivers and Wertz also partnered in beautiful music format syndicator Kalamusic.
