#TeamBeautiful is terribly saddened by the loss of our Radio One sister Sheila Stewart. Sheila was on her way to work this morning, via the Interstate 20 in Atlanta, when her Mercedes Benz came to a sudden stop and she was struck from behind by a truck. She died from injuries sustained during the accident. No one else was hurt.
“A talented colleague, Sheila’s contributions will long be felt by her Radio One family and the lives she touched through her various charitable connections and community organizations,” Cathy Hughes, Founder and Chairperson Radio One, Inc. said in a statement published on Praise 104.1′s website.
Stewart served as the News and Community Affairs Director for Radio One’s D.C. stations, delivering the news for 93.9 WKYS-FM, Praise 104.1, WOL-AM 1450, Spirit 1340, and Majic 102.3. Stewart had an admirable 20 year career in media.
RIP our Radio One sister!
