From Gail Roberts:

Tom Hall, one of Southern California’s earliest and most respected minority radio talkshow hosts, died Saturday of lymphoma and leukemia. He was 57.

Hall, a popular black radio personality who worked at KABC-AM for 19 years, began working for KABC in 1978. He was especially known for “People’s Forum,” a segment for call-in comments on topics ranging from science to sex therapy.

He also worked as a public affairs reporter for KNBC-TV’s “The Saturday Show” and “The Everywhere Show.” The radio host also briefly appeared in the motion picture “The Formula,” starring George C. Scott and Marlon Brando.

Hall spent five years as an interviewer, writer and producer for a television documentary crew before beginning his radio stint. The experience took him to Africa, Europe and the Middle East, as well as throughout the U.S., and earned him credits on more than 40 documentaries.

Hall’s last broadcast was March 15. He is survived by his wife, Luana, and four children.
