Radio broadcaster Jamie Crick passed away at the age of 57

Jamie Crick, a well-known broadcaster who worked for stations such as Jazz FM, Classic FM, and Scala Radio, passed away at the age of 57.

After working for Classic FM for 20 years beginning in 1994, Mr. Crick moved on to Jazz FM, where he first hosted the morning show and eventually took over the drivetime slot in the afternoon.

In addition, he had a show on the station’s sister station, Scala Radio, and in 2001, he was a part of the team that helped develop the first LGBT+ radio station in the UK, Gaydar Radio.

A representative for Jazz FM and Scala Radio remarked that they would “sorely miss” him after his passing.

“Jamie Crick was a broadcaster through and through and played an integral role on our radio stations,” they stated, adding that he was also a “great friend” to his fellow employees at the radio stations. Jamie Crick passed away on April 15, 2019.

“Our radio stations have a large hole to fill and will pay tribute appropriately in the near future. However, as they all come to terms with Jamie’s sudden departure, they will continue to broadcast the music that he loved in his honor on a daily basis. Our radio stations have a big hole to replace.

At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. Please accept our sincere sympathies.

On Monday, Mr. Crick hosted the last edition of his afternoon show on Jazz FM. His family reportedly told his parent business, Bauer Media, that he passed away after a brief battle with illness.

One of Jamie Crick’s fellow DJs, Simon Bates, paid homage to him on Twitter, saying, “So very sad to learn that Jamie Crick has passed away. Jamie was an endless source of support, generosity, and good humor for me when I first started working at Classic FM.

Jason Rosam, who works for BBC Radio London, expressed that he was “saddened beyond words”

It was because of him that I got my first job in radio, and his insight, direction, and unflinching support molded me in ways that I can’t even begin to explain. Forever grateful for the times we’ve spent together and the things we’ve picked up along the way.”
