Atlanta radio legend Silas Alexander III aka “SiMan Baby,” who is famous for his “Siman Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaabay” announcement of his name on the air has announced on his 58th birthday on Sept 4 that he has Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer.
The cancer was discovered during gall bladder surgery and it was discovered cancer that originated in his pancreas had already spread to his liver.
Siman has spent the majority of his career in the Atlanta market for the past 30 years working at various stations like WIGO-AM, V-103, Kiss 104.1, Classic Soul 1025, and recently Majic 107.5/97.5 until 2018.
Siman has also been helping to host the nationally syndicated Chubb Rock show for a few years but hasn’t been on the show for close to a year because of the chemo and radiation, which affected his ability to be on the air.
While he does have insurance, a GoFundMe page has been set up for him because of living expenses.
Siman told the AJC that even though he describes himself as a “workaholic,” “We never know when we’re going to go,” Alexander said. “I hate that this is an indicator that my [time] may be sooner than I had originally expected. But it gives me time to get things in place in regards to my family. It gives me perspective. Enjoy your time here and enjoy it with your family and friends that you love. It’s now in God’s hands. I am glad to have a lot of prayer warriors out there.”
Ironically, SiMan’s cousin Mix Master Mitch another Atlanta radio vet has been diagnosed with same cancer. The pair plans on doing a podcast “Cousins with Cancer” to talk about their challenges.
