Memphis Host Dies After Short Illness


Long-time WGKX-FM host Mark Billingsley died Tuesday afternoon following several weeks of illness. Billingsley suffered a medical emergency while doing his afternoon show at the station in late November. He was taken to the hospital and underwent brain surgery. He never regained consciousness. Billingsley was only 53 years old. A Go-Fundme page has been set up by his friends and family. (An earlier version of this story stated Billingsley worked in Nashville which was incorrect.)
