Glenn Falls, NY radio personality and community volunteer Michael DuBray, who died unexpectedly on Tuesday.

WCKM 98.5 FM, a Queensbury radio station that DuBray worked at, announced his death on Facebook at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.  DuBray underwent surgery at Glens Falls Hospital Monday morning for an unspecified condition, according to his personal Facebook page.

He posted on Facebook Monday evening that, “The surgery went well,” and he was resting. Acquaintances were shocked to learn on Tuesday morning of his death.

“It’s such as shock,” said WCKM Station Manager Dan Miner, later on Tuesday. “He had surgery yesterday, and now he’s not with us today. Everyone is walking around in a fog.”

He started his career at WWSC AM, located at that time on Dix Avenue, in 1991, and worked for 28 years at WWSC and its sister station WCKM. He left in 2019 to work for WENT of Gloversville, but returned to WCKM about 4 months ago.

He also owned and operated Dee-Jay Dubray Weddings and Events.

“He just loved radio,” Miner said. “Every morning he could say that he got paid to do what he loved.”
