RIP: Herb Kent “The Cool Gent”

At 88yrs young, Herb Kent, “The Cool Gent”, passed away last night (10/22/2016). He had done his last radio show that very morning on V103 Chicago! He literally did what he loved until the very end. In 2009, he made the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest tenured deejay (70yrs). He is also in the Radio Hall of Fame and the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame. Aside from his professional accolades, he was such a sweet, charismatic and funny guy. So funny. I had the honor of knowing and working with him. So thankful for the many memories Herbie Baby! ❤ RIP #HerbKent
 
Side Note: These pics were from the time I did “Battle of the Best” with him. I had Whitney Houston and he had Anita Baker. If you know Herb, you know he cheated and begged for sympathy votes so I lost lol The only person to ever beat him at “Battle of the Best” was President Obama I believe
