KPEL Contributor and long-time Wingin’ It Wednesday panelist Warren Caudle has died. Caudle, a proud U.S. veteran and active player in local politics, passed away following a short illness.

Warren is remembered around the Townsquare Media stations as someone who cared little about party lines, and more about doing what was right. A private Celebration of LIfe is planned for Friday.

Warren Caudle was 71.

Our thoughts are with his wife Helen and his entire family.
