Black died Sunday of a massive heart attack in Detroit, according to multiple reports. He was 41.
The radio jock spun records in several markets throughout his career, including New Orleans (KNOU), Los Angeles (KKBT “The Beat”) and New York (WWPR “Power 105.1”).
He is perhaps best known for his nighttime run on Detroit’s WJLB, where he launched his now infamous “Black List.” When Black left Detroit for LA, he went on to work in several independent movies and on movie soundtracks in addition to his regular radio gigs.
He was most recently a personality on Clear Channel’s “Power 105.1,” hosting Friday and Saturday nights. He also started his own company TreBlackRadioCheck – an online industry news and aircheck service.
In addition to his radio work, Black worked with Don Cody Enterprises doing voiceovers for Moses Media Inc.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
