Zane Ibrahim, Bush Radio’s former Managing Director from 1996 to 2010 and the man who led the station through some stormy and great times, has died.

We have no words at this time to describe the pain of our loss and the vacuum his passing leaves.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

You are welcome to share your thoughts, memories and tributes here.
