Bauer Media UK posted a statement on X (formerly known as Twitter) saying:
“The family of @jazzfm and @ScalaRadio broadcaster Jamie Crick have announced his death at the age of 57 following a short illness, our deepest condolences are with his family and loved ones at this time.”
Jazz FM also posted a tribute to the late presenter.
“We are incredibly sad to announce that our friend and Jazz FM Family Member Jamie Crick has sadly died following a short illness.
“Our deepest condolences are with his family and loved ones at this time.”
Jamie joined Bauer Media UK’s Jazz FM in 2014 as a guest presenter before taking over the breakfast show and then moving to the afternoon program a few years later in 2016.
He had also been with Classic FM UK since 1994 and was the creative director of Gaydar Radio.
A spokesperson for Bauer Media UK said: “Jamie Crick was a broadcaster through and through and played an integral role on our radio stations.
“He was also a great friend to his colleagues at Jazz FM, Scala Radio, and the wider Bauer Media teams. He will be sorely missed by them all, along with his friends and listeners.
“Our radio stations have a big gap to fill and will pay tribute accordingly in the near future, but while they all come to terms with Jamie’s unexpected passing, they will continue to broadcast the music that he loved in his honor every day.”
