R.I.P.: Morning Personality Caroline Corley From WXPK the Peak

Caroline Mure Corley
Iconic Westchester morning show personality Caroline Corley died unexpectedly Monday, shortly after finishing The Morning Peak at Pamal Broadcasting's WXPK 107.1 FM The Peak, in Briarcliff Manor, NY., according to The Hudson Valley Reporter.

She was just 52.

“My former wife Caroline Mure Corley suddenly just died this morning. Apparently felt dizzy and a neighbor somehow got involved and called the medics who got there quickly,” Christopher Corley wrote, taking to social media to confirm the news. “But after working with her for somewhere around 30-45 minutes, they were unable to revive her. This was after she had done her morning show at 107.1 the Peak, which she loved doing.”

“Caroline was part of The Peak from its very first hours some 9 1/2 years ago. A brilliant broadcaster and seeker of truth, Caroline had the biggest personality of anybody I’ve ever met,” wrote WXPK PD Chris Herrmann, who voiced the late morning time slot after Corley.  "The Peak will never be the same without her. Rest In Peace my friend.”

Colleagues and fans flocked to her Facebook page to express condolences as word of her death spread, and shared stories about her irreverent wit and feisty personality.

“Thanks for sharing your colossal humor and personality with me and all the students you met in my radio classes. Quite an instant positive impression you made on all you met, everywhere you went. At a coffee shop, a parking lot, a store…..and of course, on the radio,” said Tom Zarecki, a DJ and adjunct professor at Western Connecticut University. “Your radio skills were always highly-polished and ready to drop on an unsuspecting person at a moment’s notice. But hey, that was part of the fun. To quote your favorite band the Stones, Caroline, from all of us, we know your memory will ‘Not Fade Away.’ That’s a promise. Thanks for everything, my friend. “

Her previous stops included WLIR and  Country WYNY. The cause of Corley’s death remains unknown.
