Geoff Hutchison announced the death of the popular radio host on Tuesday.
“We’ve got some really sad news to share with you this morning that our beloved friend and colleague Russell Woolf died earlier this morning. It’s come as a huge shock to us,” he said.
“You leave a very big hole in our hearts.
“Today is a sad day.”
While the cause of Woolf’s death is not yet known, Hutchison told ABC listeners he had died in his sleep. Hutchison said he was contacted by the family to break the news on air.
Word of his death quickly spread across social media with shock and sadness, with some questioning the timing of his sudden passing so soon after taking his second Astrazeneca covid vaccine jab.
