Condolences to family and friends of former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WHP-A/HARRISBURG, PA morning co-host MELANIE WILLIAMS (aka MELANIE APPLE), who died MONDAY of cardiac arrest at 47.
WILLIAMS, who worked at WHP as part of the station's morning show from 1992 through 2000, had suffered from primary pulmonary hypertension and had undergone a double lung transplant in DECEMBER 2005.
WILLIAMS is the third prominent local radio personality to die in the HARRISBURG-YORK area in the last two months, following WQXA-F host LYNDI STARR and WTPA morning co-host JEFF "THE JAMMER" KAUFFMAN, both of whom passed away in MARCH.
