Houston radio personality Dinah Powers dies

HOUSTON – Dinah Powers, the former co-host of a Houston morning-drive radio show, has died after battling cancer.

Rod Ryan, of “The Rod Ryan Show” on KTBZ-FM, announced her death Thursday with a touching post on the radio station’s website.

“I will never forget her,” Ryan wrote.

Powers had been diagnosed with stage four uterine cancer that had spread to her lungs.

She left the radio show last year.

Powers appeared on KPRC 2′s Houston Life show several times alongside host Derrick Shore.

“A regular contributor for our ‘trending’ segment, Dinah always had such a funny, dry delivery,” Shore said. “She always seemed game to participate in whatever weirdness we had dreamed up for that day’s show.”

“Dinah’s fun, professional and quick personality were just a few of the reasons why she was such a joy to work with,” Shore added. “We truly loved every time she would come see us at Houston Life and we hope she knows just how much we miss her already.”

Shore shared this video on his Facebook page in September upon learning of Powers’ cancer diagnosis.
