Cobra Founder Korn Dies at 92
Carl Korn, who in 1948 founded the company that would become Cobra Electronics, passed away. Korn was 92 years old.
Cobra began as a TV repair business, originally called Central Television Service Company. The company, later known as Dynascan, went on to develop the first CB radio in the 1950s, before changing its name and becoming a consumer electronics company in the 1980s.
Korn retired as CEO in 1985 and remained as chairman through 2008.
