Information was just passed down to me regarding ATL radio legend Wayne Brown. Brown, who used to hold it down as the Program Director over at HOT 107.9, succumbed to his very quiet bout with cancer.
With more than three decades of experience across broadcasting and marketing, Brown, 55, was considered a true industry pioneer.
“Wayne was a wonderful human being,” said Ms. Catherine L. Hughes, Chairperson & Founder of Radio One, Inc., “he made you feel like you were the most important person in the world when you were with him.”
Brown who was the VP/GM of Radio One’s Atlanta market for eight years, was most recently the general manager of Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 FM.
Brown also served as senior partner and associate publisher of Who’s Who publishing company. Prior to Radio One he spent 13 years at CBS Headquarters in New York City working for network TV & radio.
Wayne was an awesome person. Period. He was instrumental in assisting me launch a radio career, that didn’t last long, on BeehiveFM. And, just recently was in talks about possibly coming on board in some capacity over at his new radio gig at 94.5.
Words cant express how saddened I am over this news. All his family is in my prayers.
