That’s what happened to me when I came to work at KUSI and met Kevin Fulton. Kevin was the Senior Booking Producer for Good Morning San Diego and the first day I walked in the door, he greeted me with a big smile, handshake and pretty much all the information I needed to know about the show and the station.
As I mentioned, he and I became more than just co-workers and I am happy I am able to call him a friend. Kevin had a spirit about him that just made you smile and feel good about yourself. He and I had very similar careers in both radio and TV and we had many a great stories to tell. He had many, many more than me.
Kevin was an extremely hard worker and dedicated to his job. He was the guy that you had to say “GO HOME!” because he was such a hard worker. Always with a great story, he actually gave me some solid life advice and no matter what we talked about, especially in my career, I knew that he believed in me. He was just that kind of human.
Kevin passed away last night after a hard fight against cancer. While I’ve only known Kevin a short period of time, his persona and attitude impacted me enough for the rest of my life. I am certain that I am not the only one in the world that feels this way. This was one of the qualities Kevin had that made him such a great booker when inviting guests on to our show.
Kevin once gave me some poignant advice during one of our lunches together. I knew he really believed in what he was saying. I am more than inspired to honor him by following that advice.
You da man Kevin. I going to miss you man.
Rock forth, Mitch
