ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WNEM) -

A popular Florida radio show host with ties to Mid-Michigan has passed away.  

WQYK radio host Dave McKay was found dead in his home on Thursday, August 4. Police said McKay didn’t show up for work that morning for the ‘Dave and Veronica’ show. A co-worker checked on him and found him dead.

“Dave was one of the nicest people any of us have ever met and he was 100% the guy you heard on air for years,” the radio station said on their website. “If you were a listener to 99.5 QYK, you were his friend – that’s how he felt. Even if you’d never met him, Dave loved you.”

McKay was a morning host on CARS 108 in Flint from 1985-1990.

“It is with heavy hearts that we report the passing of a former member of the Cars 108 family. He was a beloved morning host here, and a sweetheart of a guy,” the radio station posted.

Police are still investigating the death, but say there is no sign of foul play.
