Very sad news from KTBZ-FM 94.5 The Buzz in Houston where morning host Dinah Powers has lost a hard fought battle with uterine cancer. Per the station website, Dinah's cancer was stage 4 and had spread to her lungs.

A website post read in part: "Many of you have been following her journey as she was fighting stage 4 uterine cancer that was spreading to her lungs. So many of you generously donated to her gofundme. Dinah told us herself on the show in her emotional interview just a few weeks ago how amazed she was at the out pouring of LOVE you guys showed. My last text with her was Friday Nov. 13 getting ready for the show at 5am. I told her I was thinking about her and I loved her."

Powers has been in Houston since 2012 when she won a competition to co-host The Rod Ryan Show weekday mornings. Funeral arrangements are pending.
