Former Royals broadcaster Fred White has passed away, reportedly from melanoma.
“They are keeping everything very private,” says a source familiar with White’s situation.
Kansas Association of Broadcasters president Ken Cornish issued the following statement at 3:35 pm this afternoon:
“The Royals have announced that Fred passed away this afternoon. I’m sure you will read/hear about it shortly but needless to say it came on very quickly. I will certainly pass along any services information when I hear them. Fred kept this very private and his family also wants it that way for now.”
Earlier reports indicated White may have been suffering from esophageal cancer.
