Sue Delany, one of the most recognizable voices in the history of San Diego radio, has died.

Staff at KGB-FM confirmed Friday that Delany passed away this week.

Many who lived in San Diego in the 1980s and 1990s would recognize Delany’s sultry voice. She was a constant on the rock music station. She also co-hosted a morning show with Jeff Prescott.

Her husband, Doug Leighton, updated friends on Delany’s passing through a Facebook post.

The woman he called “my love, my world for 12 years” had been living with a number of health issues, he said.

“Finally her body could not sustain any longer,” Leighton posted.
