Death of James “Radio” Kennedy

TSR Take A Moment: James “Radio” Kennedy, the mentally retarded man who inspired the movie “Radio” with Cuba Gooding Jr., died at the age of 73, reports TMZ.

Radio was a legend in Anderson, South Carolina, and had been the heart and soul of TL Hanna High School since the 1960s, where he attended football games and often led the team to the field .

His story captured national attention in 1996 when Sports Illustrated published an article about him and football coach Harold Jones. The story then inspired the popular film by its nickname.

Jones confirmed Kennedy’s death today, saying, “He was just a good man. We all loved him. He will be greatly missed. Kennedy was reportedly ill and had been in the hospital for some time.

He had recently been transferred to a hospice.

Even after stardom, radio continued to inspire the city and was inducted into the T.L. Hanna Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016.

We are praying for Kennedy’s family at this time and for all those affected by his passing.
