R.I.P.: Dinah Powers, Former Houston Morning Personality

Dinah Powers
Alternative KTBZ is mourning the loss of one of its own, saying she fought her battle with cancer to the end.  ABC13 reports The Rod Ryan Show first shared the news on Thursday through Twitter that former radio co-host Dinah Powers died.

"It is with unimaginable sadness that I announce the passing of our friend, coworker and my former co-host Dinah Powers," the tweet read. "She was one of a kind and we are all richer for having known her."

Then, in an Instagram post, the show went into more detail about her passing and said Powers was fighting stage 4 uterine cancer that was spreading to her lungs.

Radio personality Rod Ryan also shared one of his last texts with Powers, saying his last text to her was Friday, Nov.13.

"I told her I was thinking about her and I loved her," Ryan said.

Powers co-hosted the Rod Ryan Show on 94.5 The Buzz up until August of 2019. She announced her departure just 10 days before.

Powers shared the news of her battle with uterine cancer at the beginning of October through an Instagram post.

A November update from Powers on a GoFundMe read that she had completed her first round of chemotherapy at the beginning of the month. Powers added that she was going to start another round of treatment in mid-November.
