Storyside: B bass player Ron McClelland collapsed and died Sunday (Jan. 18) while playing basketball on a listener cruise with Christian AC WCRJ (88.1 the Promise)/Jacksonville, Fla. He had been co-hosting the morning show with Theresa Ross since December at the station.
An official cause of death has not been determined, but in a statement to First Coast News in Jacksonville, a Carnival Cruise Lines spokesperson wrote, "The ship's physician will not be surprised if the cause of death in this case is ultimately to be secondary to a previously undiagnosed and long-standing case of cardiomyopathy."
McClelland is survived by his wife, Rebekah. He was 33 years old.
