Akron Gospel Radio Voice Silenced

A mainstay of Northeast Ohio gospel format radio has passed away.

Clear Channel passes along word that Anne Robinson, who has been involved with the long-running Sunday "Gospel Brunch" program and its predecessors on Akron's WARF/1350 for over 40 years, passed away on Tuesday.

Robinson is called "one of the originating voices" of the "Gospel Brunch" show, which has aired on either AM 1350 or now-sister talk WHLO/640 in some form each Sunday, since the run started with the debut of her "Gospel Time" program in 1964 on the old WADC.

The show has survived even recent format changes on the sports outlet now known as "SportsRadio 1350".

The folks on Freedom Avenue tell us that a tribute to Robinson will be aired Sunday from 7:30 AM to 10 AM on WARF/1350....
