RFFocus is sad to report the death of radio veteran Amos Brown. As I was listening to the Tom Joyner Morning Show this morning, they had nothing but incredible things to say about Amos Brown and Tom, Sybil, and J offered their sincere condolences.
Amos Brown was a two-time NAB Marconi Awards finalist and Indiana Broadcaster Hall of Famer. The man spent 40 years in Indianapolis radio as a recoginized and well respected on-air personality. WTTV Television reports Brown died of a heart attack after collapsing Friday. He was only 64. Brown hosted Afternoons With Amos weekdays from 1-3 on Radio One’s AM 1310 The Light.
Radio One Indianapolis Vice President and General Manager Chuck Williams released the following statement: “Amos has touched the lives and hearts of hundreds of our Radio One family, both past and present. Amos has touched hundreds of thousands of our extended Radio Family who have tuned in or reached out to Amos Brown every day of his illustrious Hall of Fame broadcast career. A city is identified and driven by the depth and passion of our leaders’ civic commitment. Amos Brown was large among them. During Amos’s entire life he exemplified true passion and caring for the city of Indianapolis and definitively for the community he loved to serve.”
