Atlanta radio icon Silas ‘SiMan Baby’ Alexander dies of cancer


ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – Beloved Georgia radio host and DJ Silas “SiMan Baby” Alexander III has died at the age of 58 after a nearly year-long battle with cancer.

In September 2021, on his 58th birthday, the radio legend shocked his longtime listeners with this personal announcement.

“Over the summer, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which means a part of my body has cancer, but the cancer didn’t get to me,” Alexander said.

His professional life came to a halt following his diagnosis of cancer discovered during a scheduled gallbladder operation.

“The doctors found a mass on my liver. They did a biopsy and that mass turned out to be cancerous and turned out to be from the pancreas,” Alexander said.

“I had someone call me this morning. They said I’m sad, I’m sad, I’m about to cry. I’m like don’t cry for me because I had fun. I had a good time. I consider it all a blessing to keep my life in perspective.

His 41-year long broadcasting career included several radio appearances on V-103, KISS 104.1 and Majic 107.5. In 2018 he was inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame.

His family took to Facebook on Wednesday to share news of his passing saying they “feel at peace knowing he can rest now”.

In one of his last social media posts, the deejay said he would be “stepping away from the grid for a while for some well deserved rest”.
