ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Hundreds of fans and friends of Pinky Kravitz have packed a southern New Jersey synagogue to honor the longtime radio broadcaster and tireless Atlantic City booster.

Kravitz hosted “Pinky’s Corner” on WOND-AM 1400 from 1958 until May, when he had heart surgery and retired after 59 years on the air. He died on Saturday, and a memorial service was held Wednesday at Beth El Synagogue in Margate.

Kravitz began his career in 1956, hosting a live call-in program on WLDB-AM, now 1490 WBSS. Two years later, he joined WOND and remained there through 2015.

He also hosted a weekly television program, “WMGM presents Pinky!” for many years on WMGM TV-40, and for years wrote columns for a variety of publications, most recently for The Press of Atlantic City.
