It is with unimaginable sadness that I announce the passing of our friend, coworker and my former co-host Dinah Powers.
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.
She responded later that day…
“Thanks Rod, I’m still fighting.”
“I love you too, give my best to the fam.”
She fought to the end. She was one of a kind and we are all richer for having known her.
I will never forget her.
Family is still working on all arrangements for her at this time.
Friday’s Entire Show Pod Cast… Dinah’s Celebration Of Life
Dinah called the show in October to give us an update on her battle with cancer and to thank everyone for their generosity and prayers.

Dinah moved to Houston in 2012 after winning her co-host position on The Rod Ryan Show in an on-air competition. In this podcast from September 16, 2019, she talks with Dana Tyson about her 7 years here in Houston, her time with the Rod Ryan Morning Show, working in radio, her decision to move on, and her next move.
Dinah started a Podcast early in 2020 to stay connected, laugh and chat with friends, listeners, and family.
