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.

Diaz said: “It’s with great sadness that we all just heard about the passing of Dinah Powers. She unfortunately passed away today from fighting stage 4 uterine cancer. It was an honor to be one of her first close friends when she first moved to Houston to join as co-host of The Rod Ryan Show. We had our ups and downs but we’ll always have all the great times and classic Happy Hours we spent together. She will be missed by all the team at 94.5 THE BUZZ and all her fans in Houston.”
