This morning, while on-air on GOLD104.3, Craig Huggins received a call to inform him that his mother Joyce had passed away.

Joyce, unfortunately passed away with COVID-19 in an aged care home.

Huggy said ‘She had it, but we don’t officially know what she died of.’

Huggy went on to ask Melburnians to wear masks, keep their distance from each other and stay safe.

You can hear Huggy talking about the tragic news below.

From all of us at GOLD104.3 are thoughts are with Huggy and his family in this difficult time and everyone who is going through the same traumatic experience at the moment.


And as Huggy said, we now all know somebody who has had COVID-19, so please keep Joyce in mind. Together, we will get through this.
