Lou Silverstein, 87, died on January 18, 2014 in Prescott, Arizona. A longtime radio broadcaster and advertising salesperson in Tucson and Phoenix, Silverstein bought the KYCA news and talk radio station in Prescott in 1970, and founded the Prescott music station KAHM in 1981. A year after taking over KYCA, Silverstein founded the Yavapai Humane Society in Prescott, and began his “YHS Pet Report,” aired on KYCA for 42 years. After the initial fundraising campaign to build the YHS shelter faltered, Silverstein took charge of it in 1973; the shelter opened in 1977.
