The Service Broadcasting Corporation (KRNB/K104/KKDA) family is mourning the loss of a dear colleague and family member…Nathaniel “Nate” Quick. Nate succumbed to liver cancer after a brief illness Wednesday, August 19, 2009 at Parkland Hospital. He was surrounded by his family, colleagues and friends. Services are pending.
Nate was a proud graduate of Clark Atlanta University, getting his radio start at WCLK 91.9 at a 24-hour campus radio station at CAU in Atlanta and then went on to do mornings in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he met and was mentored by the radio legend, Skip Murphy.
Nate joined the K104 family in June 2003…as the midday drive on-air personality. He hit the ground running….wanting to meet everybody and do everything having to do with his listening audience. Nate, later, joined the sister station, KRNB (105.7) where he took that same winning personality to entertain the listeners. He was especially in tune with the less fortunate, in particular, the homeless. Nate could identify with what it was like to live in your car…because he had experienced it in his life. It was always top of mind with him to make sure he was helping someone in need.
The most common words you would hear when someone described Nate Quick was that he would give you the shirt off of his back…and many times he did just that. He always had a smile on his face and kind words to say to anyone and everyone….a true jewel!
Nate Quick………Rest in Peace! You will be missed!
