Agency News

Fred Westbrook 1960-2016

November 7, 2016

With heavy hearts, KMR said goodbye to a long time member of our agency family when Fred Westbrook passed away from lung cancer on November 3rd.  One of the industry’s most original and dynamic personalities, Fred represented game show giants such as Monty Hall, Wink Martindale and Bob Eubanks as well as Adam West and many other high profile actors, announcers, and comedians.

In his almost 30 years at KMR, Fred was the force behind not only the on air careers of his clients but also worked to preserve their legacies though creative partnerships with live theatre, casino slot machines, conventions and various game show networks. From the day he graduated from Syracuse University with a BA in TV, Film and Radio, Fred was on his way to becoming the preeminent expert in all facets of the game show universe.  He co–authored The Encyclopedia of TV Game Shows and worked as a contestant coordinator before starting the Celebrity and Game Show division at KMR.  His dedication to and talent for furthering his clients dreams knew no bounds; in an age of new technology, Fred was the epitome of the old school agent who worked the phones and made deals happen seemingly out of thin air.  His vocation was his passion, and his clients were similarly devoted to him.

Fred’s upbeat personality and humor were the outward manifestation of an intensely private and humble man.  Per his wishes, few people outside of the office knew of his illness.  Fred will be greatly missed by the industry he loved, and by the people who loved him.
