I just learned that my friend, my comedic mentor, my radio father….my biggest pain in the ass….the man who taught me so fucking much, has died.
Mark Stevens, the other half of one of the most influential and best known FM Morning radio shows in the history of broadcasting, The Stevens and Pruett Show on Rock 101 KLOL, has died. He left this earthly studio for that big On Air light in the sky. He was at his at home here in Houston and it happened in his sleep—on his own terms—at 6:30 this morning.
I’ll write up an official blog post on it later tonight. Please check back after 9pm (CST), but for now you’ll have to excuse me, I have mascara that needs running.
Rest in peace, Mark. The world of entertainment radio has lost a giant.
And I swear, I’ve lost a little piece of my soul.
