Kyle Dyas, the popular music director and on-air personality at KUNC-FM in Greeley, Colo., jumped to his death from atop the 42-story Spire building in Denver on Sunday (March 6). The city’s medical examiner ruled the manner of death was suicide. As of Tuesday morning, more than 200 listeners had posted remembrances on the station’s website. “The two words that keep showing up (on the online posts) are ‘gentle soul,’” KUNC President Neil Best told the local Tribune newspaper. “I think in radio you can’t fool people on how you come across.” Dyas, 42, joined KUNC in 1996 as a staff announcer and became music director in 2002. He programmed KUNC’s “Diverse Music” show from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. weekdays. Plans for a memorial service are pending.

  • R.I.P., Kyle.
