WBAI Mourns the Loss of Margot Adler
- New York City 07/28/2014 by Linda/Manya (WBAI)
Margot Adler, longtime WBAI Radio Host and NPR Correspondent passed away this morning. She died peacefully in her home on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, having valiantly fought a recurrence of cancer.
Her friends and admirers are remembering her on her facebook page.
Margot was 68 years old. As well as being a highly regarded audio producer and reporter she was an Elder in the Wiccan Community and author of Drawing Down the Moon: Witches, Druids, Goddesses - Worshippers and Other Pagans in America Today and most recently, Out For Blood which analyses people's fascination with immortality and vampire culture. She originated WBAI's popular radio program Hour of The Wolf (now hosted by Jim Freund) in the early 70's. In 1979 she began reporting for NPR.
In every radio piece, program, book, lecture and conversation she had, Margot's attitude and wit, her life energy, infectious laugh and intelligence always shined through.
The WBAI Community expresses our deepest condolences to her son Alex and all those close to her.
