: Just saw that Lynn Samuels died yesterday afternoon. Was she sick? I know Sirius XM moved her from having a regular Left show back to more of a fill in status on a separate channel...
No one seems to know for sure [yet]. Here's what I was able to find:
Her onetime colleague at WABC, New York (770), Mark Simone, posted this tweet on Christmas Eve: "Very sad news to report - Long time NYC radio host, heard for years on WABC, Lynn Samuels has passed away." More recently, Samuels had been heard on Sirius XM, doing the show from her home in Woodside, Queens. "When she missed her Saturday morning 10:00am cue, Sirius management sent police to her apartment, where they found her dead."
BTW we're talking about Lynn Samuels, one of the early progressive - and very distinctive - voices in talk radio.
