SAG-AFTRA joins rock music and radio fans around the country in mourning the passing of disc jockey, respected rock historian, and long-time union member Pete Fornatale.

Fornatale’s four decade long career in broadcasting highlights the integrity and commitment to craft represented by union members, not only in his own work, but in the work of his union brothers and sisters that he shared with the world through his programming. Fornatale joined AFTRA in 1970.

SAG-AFTRA sends their deepest condolences to Fornatale’s friends and family. His voice will be missed not only on the air, but in our hearts.
