Veteran radio personality ‘Mighty Mike’ passes away
Michael Jones aka Mighty Mike, one of the foundation on-air personalities for IRIE FM passed away yesterday evening at his St. Ann home due to natural causes.
The veteran disc jockey and presenter affectionately referred to as ‘The Girls’ Dem Satellite” became a listener favourite as the host of many top rated shows on the station over the years including ‘The Jam’, ‘Easy Skanking’ , ‘Aftershock’ and ‘The Right Stuff’.
A consummate professional and stickler for time, Mighty Mike’s reputation for no-nonsense approach to on-air standards is legend in the company. IRIE FM’s Programmes Director Andrea Williams says, “Presenters in the News & Sports Departments knew to take extra care to be on-time lest they invoke the ire of ‘Sir’ Mike, who insisted on everything being done precisely and on-schedule.”
“Mighty Mike had a raspy style and precision of presentation and play that I can say only few are gifted with…” explained Brian Schmidt, IRIE FM/ZIP 103 FM’s Marketing Manager. “Mike was a man who was all about standards and regularly guided disc jocks, singers and DJs about what and how the correct ways to practice their craft.”
Managing Director for IRIE FM and ZIP 103 FM Chad Young said “Mighty Mike has been a foundation member of our family from day one. We will miss him, his professionalism, the conversations and his general passion for the music and the industry. The IRIE family sends our deepest condolences to Mike’s family during this difficult time.”
