Condolences to the family and friends of MARIETTA AVERY, longtime GM of AP COMMUNICATIONS Urban Contemporary WDKX-F (103.9)/ROCHESTER, NY, who died TUESDAY at 65, reported the local DEMOCRAT & CHRONICLE.
"Today, I lost my older sister," the radio station's co-owner ANDRE LANGSTON said. "She was not an employee, but a member of the LANGSTON family. She was a teacher, friend and mother to all she touched."
AVERY's link to WDKX-FM began more than 41 years ago, in 1974, as well as her presence in the community.
