Former Radio One VP Dies


Everyone who came into contact with Wayne Brown considered him one of the nicest people they knew. The former Radio One Vice President passed away this weekend, reportedly of liver cancer.

CBS's Rick Caffey told Radio Ink last night, "All of Atlanta Radio is in mourning with the passing of Wayne Brown. Wayne was loved and respected by all of us. He was a true ambassador of our industry and a colleague to all who loved radio."

Brown managed the CBS Urban cluster in Charlotte and worked as Regional Vice President for Radio One for its Atlanta, Miami, Charlotte, and Augusta properties. Sherman Kizart of Kizart Media Partners said "Wayne Brown’s involvement in everything that he touched made it better in every way imaginable. Over the weekend, the radio industry lost one of its most respected, hard-working, honest, devoted, driven, and talented leaders."

Tony Kidd works for Cox Media Group in Atlatna. He tells Radio Ink, "Wayne was one of the kindest and hardest working men I have ever known and cared deeply about his family and his radio family."

I relocated twice to work for Wayne K. He was a friend, mentor and always there when I called. He embodied family and that's why everywhere he lead, the people working with him became a family. We always had a great laugh and always caught up on our families. He has been present for every pivotal moment in my life for 16 years. I will miss him dearly. Rest now Wayne K.
