Robert Loew dies in California car crash
Longtime Hawai‘i broadcasting executive Robert M. Loew died in a traffic accident Nov. 22 in California. He was 54.
Loew’s companion, Dr. Lisa Bird, also died in the accident.
Loew was a Hawai‘i resident for nearly 30 years and recently moved to the Las Vegas area. Friends and former colleagues were shocked by the news of Loew’s death.
"During the 10-plus years I worked with Bob I found him to be a visionary, always open to new ideas and above all, a man with high integrity," said veteran Hawai‘i broadcaster Don Robbs.
Loew, who was born in Los Angeles, graduated from the University of California with an engineering degree. He later received his master’s in business administration at Stanford University.
In the 1970s, Loew joined Bob Berger at KHVH radio and was involved in the planning and senior management for Berger’s growing radio holdings. Loew later left the Berger organization and formed Loew Broadcasting. He acquired KDEO radio and other stations, which he recently sold.
"I was so proud to have him become such a key man in our companies and enjoyed sending him off on his own," Berger said. "I always knew he’d do better than I would, and he did."
Loew was a member of the Hawai‘i Association of Broadcasters, United Jewish Fund of Hawai‘i, West Pearl Harbor Rotary Club, Leeward YMCA and the Waipahu Business Association.
He also served as president of the Stanford Business School Alumni Association of Hawai‘i and was a longtime member of O‘ahu Country Club. He was the incoming president of the Las Vegas South Sunset Rotary Club.
Loew is survived by his children, Adam, Stephen and Rebecca; brother, David; sisters, Linda, and Cathy Weiner; and father, Marcus.
A memorial service will be at 5 p.m. Sunday at O‘ahu Country Club. Donations may be sent to the Ethel S. Loew Memorial Fund at Cedars Sinai Hospital, 8700 Beverly Blvd., Room 2416, Los Angeles, CA 90048.
