Condolences to the family and friends of longtime radio vet DAVE MICHAELS, who lost his battle with cancer this morning at 11:35a. MICHAELS most recently was at ABC RADIO/CITADEL MEDIA as Oldies Radio PD based in DALLAS.
“DAVE MICHAELS was a consummate broadcaster and wonderful friend to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him,” said CITADEL MEDIA Pres. JOHN ROSSO. “For more than four decades, his vibrant personality shined through as he graced the microphones of local stations across the country and entertained millions of music listeners. His charming wit and presence will be tremendously missed both in our hallways and on the air.”
Said his friend PHIL HALL, "His sister NANCY was holding his hand when he left us. NANCY says his last few hours were peaceful. DAVE will be cremated, per his wishes. No word on services yet."
He is survived by two loving sisters, NANCY and RACHEL, NANCY's children, and tons of friends.
