Bay Area Hispanic radio pioneer dead at 53

Susan Ali Shepherd, 53, who helped start the Bay Area's largest Spanish-language radio station, was killed when an elderly motorist struck her as she crossed the street in San Francisco. Shepherd helped found KSOL-FM, which she served as general manager for several years and built it into a success before it was sold to Univision Radio. She left KSOL in 2004 and formed the Latino Group, an advertising partnership, in Corte Madera. Shepherd was struck by a car at Pine and Fillmore streets, near Japantown in San Francisco on Friday night as she crossed the street with her husband and some friends. The identity of the 90-year-old motorist has not been released by police. [Chron version] [AP]
