Popular WJOB-AM 1230 radio host Steven "The Preacher" Glover died Wednesday. He was 54.

Glover, known for his at-times controversial take on region issues, was found unresponsive in his home Wednesday afternoon, WJOB owner Jim Dedelow said. The cause of death is unknown.

Glover lived in Hammond and graduated from Morton High School.

"His wit and ability to point out the obvious was a huge factor in the rebirth of WJOB," Dedelow said.

Colleagues remembered Glover for his quirkiness. The late host married his wife, Elvie, on air.

"I told him that moment in radio history made all the challenges that we have gone through here at WJOB worthwhile," Dedelow said of the wedding. "It was really cool."

Debbie Wargo, WJOB general manager, said Glover wasn't afraid to express his views.

"He really didn't care who he offended," Wargo said. "He expressed his views and that's what he believed in."
