We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Andy Preston, afternoon personality on 98.7 The GATER for nearly three decades.
We offer our deepest sympathy to his family and friends at this very difficult time.
Andy will be fondly remembered and truly missed by all.
While working with 98.7 The GATER, Andy had many opportunities to go to Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium and FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches to throw out the first pitch.
Everyone who knew Andy was fully aware of his love for music! Especially, his favorite genre Rock N' Roll. He never learned how to play the instruments but that never stopped him from enjoying the artists and their amazing talents.
Andy would love to get box sets and do unboxing videos so everyone could see the cool stuff that was inside. Below is the last video he created, when he unboxed The Eagles Legacy LP Box Set.
Andy was good friends with the drummer from Iron Maiden, Nicko McBrain. Below is one of the many interviews they had together.
Back in March 2011, Andy took listeners on a video tour of the Gater studios. He highlighted all the great memorabilia, artwork, signed guitars, and more!
In 1983, while Andy was working in Hawaii, he even got to play soccer with Joe Elliott from Def Leppard!
Here are more photos of our friend, Andy Preston.
You'll always be loved...
And forever missed.
