Doug Banks Passes Away At 57

It’s with a heavy heart that I report

Doug suffered from diabetes which eventually affected his kidneys.

He was hospitalized in December, but returned to the radio for a short time in January 2016 as he continued to undergo dialysis treatments.

Unfortunately, Doug Banks passed away on Monday morning.

V-103 released the following statement:

With a heavy heart our V-103 family would like to send our thoughts and prayers to Doug Banks’ family and friends. Doug, a true radio legend, has passed away today. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.

Many have taken to social media to remember the media giant.


His smile, his voice, and his sparkling personality will be sorely missed.

I extend my condolences and prayers to his family.
