AGUSTIN TAMARGO, the gravelly voiced, fast-talking Spanish-language radio commentator known for his passionate and insightful analysis of local politics, Cuba and Fidel Castro on UNIVISION WAQI (RADIO MAMBI 710AM), died last night of a heart attack, according to THE MIAMI HERALD. He was 80.
TAMARGO had his own show on RADIO MAMBI 710-AM since 1985 when the station premiered. "He was born a classy man," said fellow WAQI personality LOURDES D'KENDALL, who spent this morning fielding calls from distraught callers. "He was tall and very elegant. He would always wear a suit and an ascot. He was a real gentleman."
TAMARGO died at Mount Sinai Medical Center on MIAMI BEACH and is survived by his wife and seven children.
