Mike Ryan dead at 45


Long-time Niagara Falls, ON-NY radio personality Mike Ryan has died at age 45. According to The Niagara Falls Review, the veteran DJ suffered a heart attack.

Ryan had been co-host of the morning show on CFLZ-FM “The River 105.1” from 2005 until last June. He and Noelle Sinclair had actually teamed up on the afternoon show in 2004, before moving to mornings the next year. In all, though, Ryan had been on air at CFLZ for 13 years.

The River has invited fans to post remembrances of Mike Ryan on its Facebook page.

A funeral service is set for Saturday at St. Louis Roman Catholic Church in Buffalo, NY.
