Statement from Radio One:

The @979thebox and @majic1021 Family would like to share that our brother, friend, co-worker and joy Robert Bassman Washington @thebassman102 has made his final transition. Robert was called home to be with the Lord yesterday morning. Bassman started with our family on August 8th, 1994 on 97.9 The Box. He also brought us inspiration as “Praiseman” on Praise 92.1 and in recent years, he’s been your voice for Houston as part of the Tom Joyner Morning Show on Majic 102.1. Bassman was also the life of the on air party in many shifts all over our stations. Robert knew how to whet our appetite for a great meal with Robert’s Recipes. He encouraged us all to get in shape with Workout Wednesday and Robert was ALWAYS the life of the party! He was a man who never met a stranger and always had an encouraging word and a smile. He was light… he was laughter… and he was love. We share our condolences to his wife NaKeysha and his many family and friends. We invite you to honor him with prayers, favorite memories and well wishes for his family below. In the words of Robert Bassman Washington “God Bless You and know this: Hate and Love can never be friends so always choose LOVE. Remember I love you and there ain’t nothin’ you can do about it!!” ❤️
