Popular radio and television personality Bo Griffin has died in Greenville, South Carolina at the age of 51.
Griffin, who began her radio career as “Bo the Party Animal” back in the 1980s, died Tuesday (Feb. 16) of intestinal cancer.
Griffin was best known as a fixture of South Florida Radio. As one half of Power 96's Mindy and Bo Morning Show, she was one of the most popular personalities in morning radio there, according to reports. Griffin also appeared on Hot 105 and did entertainment reporting on Florida TV.
Griffin’s local success in Florida led to national television appearances including stints on Good Day Live, HGTV’s The Big Reveal and the Game Show Network’s GSN Live. She also hosted her own travel series, Blue Ribbon.
A native of Greenville, Griffin was diagnosed with cancer in January. Sadly, she had just inked a deal with Extra, which would have sent her to Los Angeles.
Griffin is survived by several family members, including her father, The Reverend David L. Hellams, her two sisters, Polly Peterson and Cindy Griffin.
