Tim Gough, 55, a British radio personality for GenX Radio Suffolk was in the middle of his morning broadcast when, according to a press release, Gough died of what was suspected to be a heart attack. Gough was pronounced dead at his home a bit before 8:00 a.m. Gough was a beloved radio personality whose sudden death at only 55 years old shocked many. His colleagues said,
“Tim was doing what he loved (at the time of his death)” adding, “The entire GenX Radio family are shocked and devastated beyond words… “Tim was a hugely experienced and highly talented broadcaster with an army of fans for his daily show… He is a very sad loss to radio and the county of Suffolk.”
The Daily Wire reports:
Gough began his radio career at Radio Orwell in 1986. He had been working at GenX Radio Suffolk for more than three decades.
“Tim has been on the radio since the 80s and had come out of radio retirement to fully involve himself in our project from the beginning, to bring local commercial radio back to his beloved Suffolk and was hugely excited for our DAB launch at the end of the month,” James Hazell, Managing Director of GenX Radio Suffolk shared.
“To know Tim personally, as I did very closely for over 30 years, was to know a warm, caring, fun guy who myself and my family loved dearly. We are heart broken by the news. I know his family are enormously comforted by the hundreds of loving messages that have been received and have asked for privacy at this devastating time.”
The press release noted that Gough is survived by his mother, brother, sister, and son.
The broadcaster’s death comes just weeks after 41-year-old recording artist Mikaben died on stage during a performance in France. He walked across the stage, suddenly collapsed, and died. His death was also suspected to be the result of sudden cardiac arrest, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
Around the same time, 17-year-old Daniel Moshi died suddenly after collapsing on stage at an all-state choir event. He was performing at the All-State Honors Show Choir for the Illinois American Choral Directors Association at Naperville North High School when he suddenly collapsed and was later pronounced dead. Moshi’s family said the teen had not been feeling well but were shocked at what happened.
Tragedies happen all the time, car accidents, falling ill, and among many other things, they’re all unavoidable. The natural, and typically cardiac system-related deaths of so many young and otherwise healthy people in recent memory is an occurrence that many have looked into, and to this point, there is speculation, but little to no definitive answer supporting the cause of this.
Many have gone on to question Gough’s vaccination status, and at this time GenX radio is refusing to make a statement one way or another on Gough’s vaccination status, or any other aspects of Gough’s personal information.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform you, our dear friend and breakfast host Tim Gough passed away this morning whilst presenting his program.
Our love to his family, son, sister, brother and mum.
Tim was doing what he loved. He was 55 years old.
RIB buddy. x
