Industry Icon Irene Johnson-Ware has Died

We regret to inform you that industry legend Irene Johnson Ware has passed.

Miss Ware was one of the nicest people in the industry and she always called me “Steve” ironically everyone who forgets my name also calls me “Steve.” I have not seen her in years but heard she was not doing well. She started in the industry in the early 60s as an air personality and became a gospel radio icon after that. Her son, the beloved industry legend Ronnie Johnson passed in 2007.
