In memoriam We are all mourning the loss of Kelly Plasker. Not just her family, and not just her work family. Everyone in Lubbock who knew her knows we've lost someone special, and the world is now a little less bright. Kelly was a beloved member of the Townsquare Media family, where she provided news, entertainment and laughter each day to the city of Lubbock as part of radio station 94.5 KFMX's morning show, TheRockShow. Her infectious laughter and passion will be greatly missed in the studio. Townsquare Media has provided grief counseling services to employees during this difficult time. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with Kelly's family.
