My lifelong friend and mentor, Tony Colter passed away yesterday. I’m overcome with grief at this time and will have more to say in the coming days. It’s because of Tony that my brother and I chose broadcasting as a career. My thoughts are with Doreen, Karley and my brother Mark.

I am truly at a loss for words right now. I just found out that my friend Tony Colter passed away yesterday. He was the first voice that I heard announce my songs on SiriusXM Watercolors. The Lord blessed me to have an opportunity to get to know him over the past few years.
I also had the honor of talking to him a few weeks ago for the last time. My heart is heavy and hurts for his family. If you knew him… his family was his world. Praying for their strength.
You will be missed my friend
