The Boatman Has Died

Post by Localnewsisdead » Mon Apr 19, 2021 11:28 am

West Michigan's K Rock has announced that longtime afternoon show host, Chris Craft (aka the boatman) has passed away.

Here is their Facebook post announcing his death due to Covid 19 Complications. May he rest in peace.

Yesterday (Sunday) at 1 pm Chris Craft Herlein AKA "the Boatman" passed away at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital as the result of complications from Covid 19. "Boat" as he was known, began his radio career in Muskegon before moving to Ludington. He joined the Synergy Media staff in May 2010 as the afternoon host on WWKR 94.1 FM K-Rock. It will be extremely difficult, if not impossible to replace him. His experience and knowledge of music and radio, along with his dry sense of humor was enjoyed every weekday from 3p till 6p by thousands of West Michigan radio listeners. His contribution to our company and his presence will be greatly missed.

Jeez... Michael O'Shea, The Captain, Dave Sherbert and now The Boatman. They're dropping like flies, sadly.

Agreed. Very sad. Let's not forget Norm Jones.
