Steve Rivers Fund Established

Steve Rivers was one of the best programmers to grace our industry.  Although I never had the pleasure to work for him, he was certainly an inspiration throughout my career … in so much as I would follow his stations for guidance on music decisions, promotional ideas, and great air talent.

March 6, we lost Steve far too soon.  His family has now established a memorial fund in his name with the National Stroke Association.

His wife, Maureen, says, “We are raising money for The National Stroke Association in order to educate people at an earlier age of the signs of strokes and the damage that high blood pressure can do to your body.

I can relate to their efforts, too.  My father, Jim Sands, also in radio (mornings at WKSJ – WUNI – WKRG et al in Mobile AL) passed away from a heart attack related to his weight and high blood pressure, at age 35.  Please join me in keeping Riv and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
