We recently found out about the loss of one of our longtime esteemed BlogTalkRadio hosts.
Will Gage, a co-host of the very popular entertainment and lifestyle show On Da Set, recently passed away after a battle with cancer.
We would like to honor Will by remembering how enthusiastic and excited he was on the air, and how much energy he brought to the BlogTalkRadio community. While we are very saddened by this news, it is only fitting that another BlogTalkRadio host brought it to our attention, because he cared deeply and knew we, the BlogTalkRadio staff, as well as the other hosts and listeners would care too.
Our CEO Alan Levy adds,
I am deeply saddened by the tragic loss of William Gage. Will was the co-host with Idalyze on the BlogTalkRadio show “Ondaset”. Ondaset is one of the most longstanding and special shows on the network and when I started BTR in the fall of 2006, every week I knew that I could listen to Will and Idalyze have an absolute great time while they were on their show. Will would always brighten the room and bring smiles to his thousands of fans. When other talk radio networks sprouted up, Idalyze and Will stood by me and BlogTalkRadio. I will never forget their loyalty and hearing Will’s greetings when I was lucky enough to be a guest on their show.
BlogTalkRadio is not just a website, like the countless other websites out there. We are a community. A community of people, passionate people, intelligent, critical, observant, and likeminded people who use BlogTalkRadio to communicate and reach a world outside ourselves.
We will miss Will, when we hear the silence On Air where we once heard his voice. We would like to plan a tribute broadcast, and if you are interested in participating, please drop us a line.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
