R.I.P.: Longtime Des Moines Radio Personality Pam Dixon
Longtime Des Moines radio host Pam Dixon has died, radio station KIOA 93.3 FM announced on its website Friday.
Dixon’s broadcast career spanned nearly 35 years, and she brought Iowa listeners along with her during her 10-year battle with breast cancer.
She had retired earlier this year to focus on her health and live life to the fullest.
“For the last decade, she battled cancer with the most amazing courage and spirit,” KIOA posted. “Eventually, her physical form was no match for the disease, but her will to live a rich life – filled with fun and laughter, never yielded. With the help of prayers, hugs, and medicine, she managed to find hope at every turn – through every hill and valley of her long struggle…
“We think Pam would want us all to continue her work, to tell her story and to keep love, hope, and laughter at the heart of living.”
