    The entire Costa, Carley and Caruso families mourn the death of Jim. He was a kind person who was a second son to his longtime landlady, Anita Costa. He will be sorely missed. Our condolences to the Curtin family.

    Very sorry for your loss. I worked in Sales Management at Katz Television when I first met Jim. I reconnected with him about a year ago when I joined Gray Television and had the pleasure of speaking with him regularly and attending meetings with him in New York. Jim was a wonderful guy and one of the smartest and best research/programming people I have ever worked with in the TV business.

    He was as talented a Programmer
