Angelo Iacobucci, 60, suddenly on Dec. 15. As a reporter for four decades at Radio NL (CHNL-AM) Kamloops, Iacobucci’s unmistakable baritone and trademark sign-off were a staple on the station’s airwaves. Known as “Bootch” to his co-workers, Iacobucci started with the station in 1979. For much of that time, he covered city hall and was known for his ability to ask tough questions in the scrum, while maintaining good relationships with politicians. In 2003, he was honoured, along with colleagues Trevor Metz, Jim Harrison and Bob Price, with the Jack Webster Award for Best News Reporting of the Year.
