Von — long the leading voice of black talk radio in Milwaukee — died of an apparent heart attack.
Von, whose full name was Eric Von Boardley, was 58.
Von was a WNOV radio host. His show ran from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays. Before that, he had worked for years as director of operations and a radio show host for WMCS-AM (1290) before the station changed its format in 2013.
Several years ago, he was the co-host “It’s Your Vote,” a weekly show that aired on WISN-TV.
News reports confirm that Von had passed away while on his back porch with his dog shortly before 9 p.m. His body was discovered by his wife, Faithe Colas.
The Spanish Journal sends our condolence to his family and prayers. RIP Eric.
