I am SO sorry to hear of the passing of my ‘sistah in the biz’, Francene. As a 20 plus year radio personality, formerly of B96, it’s a pleasure to have known her. Her work spoke volumes as she never backed down from a ‘fight’. She constantly asked the tough questions and ALWAYS held her own. I’m proud to have interacted with her and am a better ‘radio personality’ having known her. You will be sorely missed. My condolences and prayers will be with her family.
