From Jeremy and the entire 103.9 The Fox family:
We are heartbroken to report that our beloved Derek Sorenson passed away unexpectedly on July 16, 2022. He loved hosting events and making people smile. He absolutely loved coming to work and talking to listeners both on the air and on the phone. He would take the time to talk to listeners on the phone or while on remote broadcasts. He was incredibly helpful behind the scenes here at The Fox, and never left without asking “need anything before I go?” His heart was genuine and true, and we will miss him immensely. Rest in peace, Derek, and in your own words… “Deuces”
Derek’s friends and family painted the Hammerberg Rock in his honor.
HERE IS DEREK’S PAGE AS IT WAS, INCLUDING RECOGNITION FOR BEING VOTED FLINT’S FAVORITE RADIO DJ TWO YEARS IN A ROW.
Congratulations to Derek for being voted Flint’s Favorite Radio DJ for the second consecutive year-in-a-row!
As I continue my radio career, I am excited to be a part of the 103.9 The Fox crew! I have been known to be quick-witted with jokes that never get old, a wealth of useless knowledge, not only with music and who sings the songs, but also sports.
I quote movie lines way too often. So much that my brother and I have carried on conversations with other people using movie lines from everything from ‘The Blues Brothers’ and ‘Anchorman’ to ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ and most people have no idea what we are even talking about.
I also host trivia shows a few nights a week at some local venues, and love to get a smile and a laugh for being goofy. Music is a big part of my life, even though I cannot play an instrument… although I have been known to air drum from time to time.
One thing I have always said that sometimes you don’t choose the song or music… it chooses you. Listen to the lyrics and not just the song.
My daughter is my world and inspiration. I am a huge sports fan (die hard Michigan/Tigers), and I have a shoe addiction. Yes, I own a ton of Nike shoes… don’t judge.
I’m out… deuces!
