Rickey Smiley Show Member 'Pastor Fred' Dies After Contracting Covid-19

 Pastor and comedian Fred Thomas has died after suffering COVID-19 complications, his family announced Wednesday morning. 


“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of my father Pastor Fred Thomas,” his son said in a Facebook post. “This was not our will or desire, but it is the will of God in which we accept. Please pray for my family and I as we go through this trying time of loss. All will be well and we will make it through this as he would have wanted us to.”

Pastor Fred Thomas was from Mckinney, Texas and had a well established comedy career. He joined The Rickey Smiley Show for the "Church in 60 Seconds" segment in January after the show relocated from Atlanta to Dallas. Here is a message from Rickey Smiley and an interview with Thomas' wife Desiree. Dallas TV station NBC5 had reported on and followed Fred Thomas' condition. He contracted the virus on December 10. There has been an outpouring of love on Thomas' facebook page.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
