Radio host Rich Davis is dead
RICH Davis, long-serving host of the popular Sounds of the Carib-bean radio show on WLRN in South Florida, has died.
According to the Miami Herald, WLRN programme director Peter J Maerz said Davis was found motionless by his girlfriend Mexine Bisasor last Wednesday in a bathroom in Jamaica.
The report did not state where his body was discovered but said paramedics failed to revive him.
Davis was 41 years old.
"It's a major blow. His programme was a signature programme on WLRN," Maerz said. "We're going to have to consider very thoughtfully how we move forward with our overnight programming."
St Elizabeth-born Davis had hosted the late-night Sounds of the Caribbean since 2007. It was Miami's longest-running Caribbean show on 91.3 FM.
He was also host of BBC World News on WLRN.
Davis started his career in 1991 as a volunteer on Radio Waves (now HOT 102 FM). He is survived by Bisasor and their son.
