The Radio One family is mourning the passing of their longtime friend and colleague, Tony Washington, VP of Advertising Sales for the company’s Reach Media division. Washington died Tuesday night, Nov. 10 at the age of 73.
The company issued a statement that read, “It is hard to think of Radio One and not think of Tony Washington. He joined Radio One in 1991 when the company had just two radio stations in Washington, DC, rising to General Manager of our Washington, DC radio stations and then VP of Advertising Sales. Tony was as loyal and trusted an employee as you could ever want, who always fiercely advocated for and protected Radio One’s share of the advertising pie. We will sorely miss him.” Memorial services are being planned.
