August 14, 2013 —
Mark Cooper, who was a long-time radio host on WPDH in Poughkeepsie, which also has a transmitter in Jeffersonville, passed away. He had been off the air recently because of health issues, and he suffered a stroke on August 11.
A statement from the radio station said, "We are sad to announce that Mark Cooper passed away Wednesday, August 14th. Everyone at WPDH is completely devastated. Coop was a friend to so many people in the Hudson Valley and had an incredibly infectious joy for life. He was a caring and dedicated advocate for so many causes both on and off the air, it's hard to imagine mornings without his voice.
Those of us who were fans of his show, or lucky enough to know Mark on a personal level will miss him deeply. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. Coop would certainly want us to celebrate his life and we invite you to share your memories on our Facebook page.
