The NEW JERSEY BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION wrote, "NJBA Mourns The Loss of Great Garden State Broadcaster. FAYE B. GADE passed away YESTERDAY morning after a long illness. She was 65. Faye was married to NJBA Treasurer DICK SWETITS. Her funeral will be held TODAY (1/30) at 1:30p at BLOOMFIELD COOPER JEWISH CHAPELS, 2130 Rt 35 in OCEAN, NJ."
"FAYE is best remembered for NEW JERSEY's legacy station, WHTG," continued THE NJBA, "which first signed on OCTOBER 11, 1961 at 105.5, as the sister station of WHTG-A (1410 AM). The station was named for HAROLD and THEO GADE, its first owners and operators. Eventually, the GADE's daughter FAYE, became GM of the station. FAYE GADE assumed ownership of the station in 1985. Our thoughts and prayers, and our deepest condolences go out to FAYE's surviving family and friends, and especially to our dear friend and colleague, DICK SWETITS. Rest in Peace FAYE."
