The entire team at Townsquare Media Southwest Michigan and the listeners of 95.3 WBCK are devastated to learn that former Midday On-Air Radio Host David "Renk" Renkiewicz has passed away on April 17th after battling cancer.
Renk was on the air in Lansing for a time in the middays on WJIM from 9am to 12pm.
Renk is survived by his Wife Amy, who gave the unfortunate update on the Renk Live Facebook, seen below:
Renk Listeners, in deep sorrow, I want to share that Dave passed away peacefully at home last night. He was surrounded by his family. Services will be held at Baxter Funeral Home in Battle Creek. I will post a link on this site when the details are finalized. Thank you for the years you faithfully listened to Renk's show. He loved sharing with all of you and truly enjoyed the discussions he had with the callers. That is what made his show unique. Thank you for all of the kind words, offers of support and many cards sent to him in recent weeks. We feel very loved and supported. Amy
Renk was given the heartbreaking diagnosis of Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma of the Biliary Tree in early April. Our thoughts, prayers and love go out to his wife and children during this unimaginably difficult time.
