Linda Gaston, Community Affairs Director and receptionist at Gulf-California Broadcast Company, has died after a long battle with cancer.

As our Community Affairs Director, she helped keep our stations in touch with the many charitable organizations in the Coachella Valley. As our receptionist, Linda was the first voice you heard on the telephone when you called our stations or the first person you met when you visited here.

"Linda always had a smile for anyone who visited the stations," said Mike Stutz, General Manager of Gulf-California Broadcast Company. "She led our efforts in community projects for years and always led by example.  We miss her. "

Linda joined Gulf-California Broadcast Company in 1998. She retired in 2012.

Her work on earth is done. Her life in heaven has just begun.
