It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of yet another legend passing on.
12/13/2020

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of yet another legend passing on.

It is with great sadness that we confirm that Charley Pride passed away this morning, Saturday, December 12, 2020, in Dallas, Texas of complications from Covid-19 at age 86. He was admitted to the hospital in late November with Covid-19 type symptoms and despite the incredible efforts, skill and care of his medical team over the past several weeks, he was unable to overcome the virus.

Charley felt blessed to have such wonderful fans all over the world. And he would want his fans to take this virus very seriously.

Charley Pride was the son of Tessie Stewart Pride and Mack Pride, Sr. He was the husband of Ebby Rozene Cohran Pride. His children are Carlton Kraig Pride, Charles Dion Pride, and Angela Rozene Pride. His grandchildren are Carlton Kraig Pride, Jr., Malachi Pride, Syler Pride, Ebby Pride, and Arrentino Vassar. His two great-grandchildren are Skyler Pride and Carlton Kraig Pride, III. he is preceded in death by brothers Jonas McIntyre, Mack Pride, Jr., Louis Pride, Edward Pride, and Joe L. Pride, and by sister Bessie Chambers. He leaves behind siblings Harmon Pride (and spouse Barbara), Stephen Pride (and spouse Pamela), Catherine Sanders, and Maxine Pride, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to The Pride Scholarship at Jesuit College Preparatory School (https://www.jesuitdallas.org/make-a-gift), St. Philips School and Community Center (https://www.stphilips1600.org/get-involved/donate.cfm), The Food Bank, or the charity of your choice.

“98.3 KORA is one of four radio stations owned and operated by Brazos Valley Communications, Ltd in the Brazos Valley. The company owners are Texans with a long history as Texas broadcasters beginning in 1989.

The roots of the group began with KORA-AM at 1240 on the AM dial. The station’s first studio, located at 305 West 26th Street in Bryan, was the second station on the air in the area. D.C. Jones, the original owner and manager of the station started a long history of entertainment when he with a crew of nine others made their first broadcast on September 10, 1947 from Bryan, Texas. The popularity of the radio station, whose call sign was dedicated to Mr. Jones’ mother, Kora Jones, grew over the years to become the radio station of choice for the community, as a trusted source for the latest news, weather, and sports.

In 1966, the radio station reached two landmarks in its history when the station outgrew its original offices. As the station moved to its current location at 1240 Villa Maria Road in April of that year, it also launched its’ KORA-FM on 98.3 FM.
