The sudden passing of Mix FM radio announcer Michael Faga on Monday afternoon at the Lautoka Hospital at 55 years old has shocked the late-night radio listeners.

Mr Faga began his radio career in the 90s at the Koula FM radio station based at the Vatukoula Gold mines then on ZFM, in Lautoka. This station was then converted to Mix FM or Mai Mix. This is where he was affectionately known as the ‘Love Guru’ by those who listened to him from midnight to dawn, where he played old-time favourites

Mix FM Director Richard Lucas said the sudden passing of Mr Faga left a huge gap in the organisation as he was irreplaceable.

“I’ve known Michael for 20 years or more when he was with ZFM and then he was with Mix FM for a long time. He was one of the most valuable, loyal and hardworking employees I’ve ever known, he was always there, totally reliable,” he said.

“Michael was a lot of fun, he was very good at his job, he was a good master of ceremonies, he was a real character and broke the mould, he always did things differently which was great.”

He said in over the 10 years of his employment, Mr Faga had become Mix FM’s icon.

The late Mr Faga’s is survived by his five siblings who reside overseas.
