TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Radio personality Peter Deibler, best known as host “Kane” of the once-nationally-syndicated morning show “The Kane Show,” has died after a long illness, according to reports. He was 43.
“Although co-hosts came and went, Kane remained a constant, comforting voice for thousands of people driving to work, dropping the kids off at school and running errands,” lawyers for Deibler’s family said in a statement.
Deibler worked at radio stations in Connecticut, Florida and Washington, D.C. He moved to Tampa in 1998 to join 93.3 WFLZ, and hosted “The Extreme Show,” which aired in multiple markets across the country.
Deibler anchored “The Kane Show” on HOT 99.5 in Washington, and the Sunday Night “Club Kane,” which aired in 100 stations until its cancellation in April 2020.
Deibler is survived by two daughters.
iHeartRadio released the following statement:
