FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Friday, February 1, 2019
Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio issue the following statement on
the passing of media icon Jon Alan Anderson:
“Our hearts sank this morning upon hearing of the passing of Guam radio icon Jon
Anderson. He was our source for news and our connection to each other through the
morning airwaves for decades – whether it was celebrating a triumph, mourning a tragedy,
or surviving a typhoon or an earthquake. His voice brought us together more than any
current social media channel ever could. Guam has lost a media legend whose
contributions to our island will be remembered for generations,” said Governor Leon
Lt. Governor Tenorio added, “Jon’s integrity, as a radio talk show host, a journalist, and as a
person was evident in everything he did. Our hearts go out to his family, most especially his
wife Mahi, his daughter Debbie, and his sons Keoki, Maka, Darren, and Tony, who is a
member of my security detail. Jon’s illness was one that cruelly robs the human body but
leaves the mind and soul intact. It is heartening to know that he stands tall once again, his
rich, velvety pipes now gracing heaven’s airwaves.”
