I had the pleasure of working in the KTTS newsroom when Curt Brown was general manager at KTTS. Always remember him as a great leader and someone who made work enjoyable.

I grew up listening to Curt doing his daily editorials on KTTS. I enjoyed them so much. In the early 90’s I got to meet him face to face in his office at KTTS while working at the sister station KZBE B-95. I remember being so nervous, but Curt assured me that he had never bitten anyone and I was not going to be the first!! He was a man of great integrity and had the ability to make everyone around him inspire to be a better person and harder worker. My condolences to Dee and his children. Just let God hold you tight in his loving arms and give you the peace and love that you so much need now. Heaven has become a wonderful place with Curt’s presence in it. You know that they are having a major RANCH HAND reunion now and forever more. Rest easy Curt, until we meet again sir.

Curtis Brown was more than a friend, he was a buddy. He helped me stay in step in the HHS band. We hung out together at the Dairy Queen on numerous Fridays. I watched him grow into a man his parents were proud of, friends enjoyed, his community respected and honored. In John 14:2 Jesus said “I go to prepare a place for you.” With Curtis’ help, both the music and the communication in Heaven will be more perfect.

Condolences to Curt’s family from the Petersen’s (Ron SR, Louise and Ron JR. Sorry for your loss. Your family will remain in our thoughts and prayers. In the “good old days” (before consolidation in the Radio industry) there were a lot of fledgling broadcasters that were inspired by Curt Brown. I was one of those young pups and admired him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Curt was a shining example of a true leader and an exceptional broadcaster. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to know him. I’m reminded that death is not an end. It’s simply a new chapter in the book of life. Until we meet again Sir, we’ll do our best to make today count!

My condolences to Curt’s family from the Zimmer Broadcast families. Curt was a mentor, leader, friend, and a shining example of a great community broadcaster. Everyone has tried to copy Curt, which is the highest form flattery. “Often imitated, but never duplicated”, I would say. Curt was one of a kind. The best kind one could be.
