Talk Show Caller Drops Dead On Air
January 6, 2006 at 6:40 AM (PT)
A regular caller to a MAGIC 1548/LIVERPOOL, UK talk show died on the air THURSDAY. Host PETE PRICE heard the call by regular caller "TERRY" go silent and, after failing to convince MERSEYSIDE POLICE to check on the caller, asked the man's neighbors to check on him. After a listener broke into the house and found the 60 year old caller dead of a heart attack, PRICE left the station to go to the man's house, where an ambulance had already arrived. The police are investigating the response to PRICE's plea.
PRICE's show will be moving early this year to sister RADIO CITY/LIVERPOOL, where he already does a SUNDAY night show.
