Heartbroken is all I can say. Brent was a genuine and kind person. What you heard on the radio is exactly how he was.
Jim Zimmermann and I interviewed Brent for an announcer job at WGLR in 1996. At the time he was unemployed after parting with a station in upper Michigan. LaDonna was pregnant with their first child, Avery and he made it clear that he just wanted a chance. He made that chance last for over 20 years at QueenB before returning to Minnesota a few years ago.
I’ve been a part time employee at QueenB in some capacity for over 25 years and I was appreciative that Brent asked me to be a part of Xtreme when it was launched. In a reversal of roles I truly enjoyed being part of “his” team.
Rest In Peace my friend, you will be missed by many.
