This morning, KiSS 105.3’s Angela Gemmill posted the following message about Griffin’s passing:
We have heavy hearts here at KiSS & Q-92 as we’ve lost a friend and co-worker. Rich Griffin, Morning-show host on KiSS 105.3 suffered a brain aneurism over the weekend and was put on life-support so he could be an organ donor. He was 52. For 14 years, Rich helped wake up Sudbury weekday mornings with his co-host Gary Beech. Rich was extremely involved in the community, from emceeing events to involvements with non-profit groups. He leaves behind his wife Nancy and five-year-old daughter Zoe.
