ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — WGY host Don Weeks has passed away at 76.
“He just has that knack, that uncanny ability to communicate one-on-one with the audience,” iHeartMedia Programming Manager John Cooper said.
Those who worked with Weeks said he instinctively knew what his listeners were thinking and always kept ahead of his audience.
“Some people just have that instinct,” Cooper said. “There aren’t many. They are few and far between, and that is why this is such a loss. Don is a unique entertainer.”
“To me, he ranks right up there with one of the best personalities that you ever heard on the radio,” Cooper said.
When Weeks signed off the air for the last time, he had one tearful request: “Remember me with a smile.”
