NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Longtime Nashville radio personality Teddy Bart, who was recently inducted into the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame, has died at the age of 78.

In a statement to the media on Sunday, Bart’s family said he died on Saturday and that his body has been cremated. He requested there be no memorial or visitation service.

Bart began his radio show, “The Teddy Bart Show”, on WSM in 1969. According to his website, he worked in radio and television at WSM for about 11 years before becoming a prime time anchor at WKRN-TV, where he worked a short time before returning to radio.

In addition to his longtime broadcasting career, Bart also had songs recorded by legendary artists such as Brenda Lee and Johnny Mathis.

Bart was inducted into the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame earlier this year.
