    ANGELO HENDERSON

    Detroit, MI – February 15, 2014 – We at Radio One Detroit are devastated by unexpected news today. We regretfully must confirm the passing of one of our on-air icons Angelo B. Henderson. Henderson has been with Radio One Detroit for 15 years and was the host of the popular talk show “Your Voice with Angelo Henderson” on Newstalk AM1200/99.9FM WCHB for the past 6 years.

     “Angelo was a strong pillar in the community, I am saddened by his untimely passing and he will be greatly missed by the entire Detroit community and his Radio One Detroit family,” Kathy Stinehour, V.P./General Manager.

    Pulitzer Prize winning writer Angelo B. Henderson was a print and broadcast journalist for over 24 years. He was an active proponent for the betterment of the Detroit community and was recognized as such.  Also known as “Rev. Angelo,” because he was ordained in ministry by Dr. Charles G. Adams in December 2003. He was the Director of Community Outreach at Triumph Church, he was also the co-founder of The Detroit 300, and he was named one of the “Men of Excellence 2011” by the Michigan Chronicle, and was recognized as WXYZ Channel 7’s “Person of the Week” as part of its Detroit 20/20 feature.  Most recently Angelo was celebrated as the 2013-2014 “Humanitarian of the Year” by My Sister’s Keeper, a non-profit that helps battered women shelters.

    At this time our hearts and prayers are with his wife, son, extended family and his radio family. During the upcoming week we will be honoring our friend and colleague on all four stations in various ways.

    ONE OF ANGELO’S LAST MESSAGES ON HIS FACEBOOK TO HIS FAMILY AND LISTENERS OF YOUR VOICE ON WCHB:

    “Hey Ya’ll – I felt (and continue to feel) your prayers! I felt completely covered spiritually by the love and support and kindness of MY friends and my FAM! Yeah –WITHOUT QUESTION — my FB Cuz’ns and my “Your Voice” listeners are MY FAM too and ya’ll can’t do anything about it! I’m up taking my meds and getting an ice treatment. Grant came home from college to help ‘Pops’ so Felecia and “G” are indeed holding it down. Back to rest…..thanks again for caring! It’s just like the gratefulness I have for you all as radio listeners. You don’t have to do either – but I’m blessed because you all do both.”
