Chad Young, CEO & MD of IRIE and ZIP FM passes away February 27, 2014

At approximately 5:00 pm this afternoon (Thursday, February 27, 2014), Chad Young, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of IRIE FM and ZIP 103 FM, passed away after succumbing to illness.

He was 27 years old.

Mr. Young continued the tradition of his father Karl “Chief” Young of innovation and futuristic thinking with IRIE FM and ZIP 103 FM being the first local media houses to have mobile apps, creating a new corporate home for ZIP FM and building the most powerful and best sounding music truck in Jamaica, the Shockwave.

He was also keen on being as original and cutting edge as possible on air as well as online.

Chad was loved and respected for his happy nature, affableness and down to earth personality.

The family of Mr. Young and the Management and staff of IRIE FM and ZIP 103 FM are grateful for the outpouring of affection and promise to carry that with them as they grow from strength to strength.
