When WARM first went on the air in 1958 as The Mighty 590, Vince Kierney was one of the first personalities. Dubbed “The blonde Adonis” by George Gilbert Kierney did a double shift on WARM. He’d do the afternoon and the drive time evenings. Kierney came to a WARM reunion and was a call in guest to the last WARM reunion sanctioned by a radio station. (That was the old WSGD-FM) Here’s his obit from the newspaper in Colorado: 
Vincent Anthony Kierney departed to heaven on July 8,2020. Vince was born June 14,1935 in Jersey City NJ to John and Stella Kierney. He was a well known disc jockey in Scranton PA and met many music stars of the 1960s, which he cherished. He finished his career as an adjuster for Allstate and moved to Colorado in 1987 to be closer to family. Vince was a loving father and grandfather. He loved going to movies, spending time with family, and was a devoted member of the Knights of Columbus and St. Patricks church. Vince is survived by his daughter Gail, son Kevin, daughter-in-law Max, and 2 grandchildren Joshua and Jeremy. Services will be held on Saturday, July 18 at 11:00am at St. Patricks church in Colorado Springs, CO. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
