A man who had been a Flint radio personality for more than 4 decades has died.

Sam Williams, host of Sunday Morning Gospel on WDZZ Z92.7 died Monday at the age of 93.

Williams helped launch WDZZ in the spring of 1979 as the first Black-owned station in Flint.

He spent 40 years on-air at WDZZ.

“Sam had an amazing life and career,” said Marketing Manager Chris Monk. “He only recently came off the air, which is a testament to his dedication to WDZZ, Flint, and his many loyal listeners.”

Funeral arraignments for Williams haven’t been announced yet.
