UK radio DJ passes away whilst broadcasting live on-air

Tim Gough, a radio broadcaster on local station GenX Radio Suffolk, died whilst presenting his morning show on Monday, October 24th.

Having been away from radio for over a decade, Gough returned earlier this year to host a morning show on the popular local radio station – also launched this year.

Gough’s career spanned almost four decades, including over 25 years as a broadcaster with stints at Radio Orwell, Saxon Radio and Smooth Radio.

It’s thought that the 55-year-old, born and raised in Suffolk, died from a heart attack mid-song during his show. Broadcasting from his home, 35 miles from the station’s headquarters in Ipswich, the music stopped suddenly around 07:50 before continuing just a few minutes later.

GenX released a statement via Twitter, tweeting: “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.”

James Hazell, managing director of GenX Radio, said: “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 heartbroken 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.”
