D-C Radio: RIP...Peter Deibler, Former Host Of Kane Morning Show

Peter Deibler
Peter Deibler, known to thousands of morning drive time WIHT Hot 99.5 FM radio listeners as "Kane", passed away after a long illness on Friday, March 6th at the Shady Grove Adventist Medical Center in suburban Maryland.

His death was announced by  the law firm Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A.

"The Kane Show" hit the FM dial in the Washington area in 2006. For years, it has been among the DMV's most-listened-to morning radio programs, playing the latest hits and popular segments. Kane routinely discussed being a father to his two daughters, Sam and Sophie, endearing him to his many listeners.

The Kane show, that also aired on Top 40 stations in Baltimore, Louisville, and Tampa, originated from the iHeartRadio studios located in the DC metropolitan area.

Deibler was host of the Kane Show for 14 years until April of 2020. His exit from the show came four years after he was arrested for assault in connection with an incident involving his estranged wife.

The Deibler's divorce hit a crescendo in May 2016, when Natasha filed second-degree assault charges against Peter. Natasha claimed the radio host tossed her against a wall at his luxury, high-rise apartment in North Bethesda.

Natasha was picking up the couple's two young daughters at the time of the incident, and reportedly suffered a sprained knee, head injury, bruises, and a black eye. In court, both accused each other of substance abuse and unspecified erratic behavior. Prosecutors ultimately dropped the criminal case, which has since been expunged from public court records.
