WASHINGTON ADVENTIST UNIV. BROADCASTING Christian WGTS (91.9)/WASHINGTON, D.C. VP/GM JOHN KONRAD has died following a battle with bi-lateral pneumonia, as reported by ADVENTIST CHURCH CONNECT. He was hospitalized early last week and showed signs of recovery and was discharged, but suffered a relapse and did not respond as hoped to further treatment. JOHN leaves behind a legacy of service to radio, loving family, co-workers and a host of friends.
The radio station has set up a page on their website, "Farewell to a Friend," where they note: "We're heartbroken, but taking comfort in the hope that we have in Jesus. Our friend and GM of WGTS 91.9, JOHN CONRAD, passed away this morning in BALTIMORE, after a brief illness with pneumonia. We are so grateful for your prayers for his wife DAWN and the rest of the family."
Listeners are invited to leave a message to the family on how JOHN has impacted their life.
As funeral plans are finalized they will be made public on the WGTS website. The staff at ALL ACCESS would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the staff of WGTS, the KONRAD family, and friends.
