Edward J. “Ted” Koplar passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family April 4, 2021. He was 77 years old. 

Koplar was known as a pioneer and innovator in the television industry and beyond. A native St. Louisan, he grew hometown favorite KPLR-TV into one of the most successful independent television stations in the country. In a career filled with accomplishments, Koplar also launched Voltron, an animated TV sensation that swept the nation, and pioneered a revolutionary technology that made television interactive. More than anything, those he worked with remember him for his enormous heart and extraordinary kindness.
