Long time Detroit radio and TV host Jamie Samuelsen passed away over the weekend after a long battle with Colon Cancer. He was beloved by the city and everyone who had the pleasure of getting to know him…
As we look back and remember Jamie’s life, there are a few tributes that stand out..First is the article from Bob Wojnowski who was a long time co-host with Jamie on the radio and Lions pregames.
“Jamie was so smart, and had the perfect smirk to go with his lethal deadpan humor. Here’s a dirty little secret: Jamie would help me every single week to come up with jokes for my college football picks column. Silly, right? It mattered to him because it mattered to me. He knew the right things to say, and how to make people feel better about their work.”
Here is Wojo’s full piece:
Here is the very powerful video from Dan Miller of Fox 2 who worked with Jamie a lot over the years:
Jamie was part of the Detroit media for over 25 years and impacted lives of many during that time and it’s safe to say that impact will live on even after he is gone.
