    Sorry to hear of the passing of one of the finest radio news men I ever heard, knew, or worked with. I will forever remember hearing him on the 12:15pm news as a youngster and then having the honor to work with Johnny Deidiker as part of my first job at KWPM. He gave me sound advice to enjoy what I was doing; it was easy to tell he loved his profession.

    Prayers for comfort to the entire family.

    Sorry for your loss. I feel privileged to have had the chance to know John. I’ll always remember him as having a smile, and a joke or a story that would make you smile too. This time of year, I always remember working a Christmas morning shift at KWPM. John surprised me by coming in to help with the morning news casts. We ditched the usual news intro that morning in favor of “Sleigh Ride”, and John started the news with a hearty Ho Ho Ho! My prayers are with you.
