bobbennettRFFocus would like to send our condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of radio veteran Bobby Bennett. Also known to many as “The Mighty Burner,” Bennett passed away Tuesday evening in Florida at the age of 75 years old. The Pittsburgh native suffered a stroke in July, which would eventually lead to his passing.

Bennett’s nickname, “The Mighty Burner” came from his days at D.C. Soul music AM station WOL. He worked there from the late 60’s up until 1980. Bennett also worked as a sports announcer on WTOP and later as program director at WHUR. As a legend in the D.C. radio market, Bennett also hosted an R&B show on WPFW but one of his biggest accomplishments was creating the “Soul Street” channel on Sirius XM, where served as program director for that channel. Beyond his radio accomplishments, Bennett also co-authored a book about Motown and R&B.

Bobby Bennett is survived by his wife Connie, his son Eric, his daughter Amy and his grandchildren. We wish them well.

Hassahn is no stranger to the power of words. Just as Lebron took his talents to South Beach, the Chicago native has taken his talents to Hollywood and beyond. His ability to manipulate the English language has led to a career using his gift. He currently writes songs for TV/Film; he has co-written a book alongside Dr. Kerby T Alvy Ph.D; Hassahn produced and wrote DEMOs documentary film, and of course he scribes for Radio Facts on the daily.
