In Memory of Andrea Lewis(June 4, 1957 - November 15, 2009) Victoria Z and Andrea Lewis at the 2007 Power to the Peaceful live broadcast. It is with deep sadness that we bring you the news of the death of our own Andrea Lewis. She died this weekend of an apparent heart attack at her San Francisco home. She was just 52. Andrea's parents are on their way from Florida. We are planning a memorial service and will let you know as soon as we have details. Andrea came to KPFA in 1999 as a co-host of the Morning Show. She later became host of Sunday Sedition and an Evening News Co-Anchor. Andrea was a true Renaissance woman with an interest in politics, world affairs, sports, science, music and the arts. She was dedicated to discussing on and off the air issues of social justice, especially in regards to racial and gender equity. Her booming laugh filled the hallways of the station. Andrea occasionally hosted Pacifica National broadcasts; she was an early host for Free Speech Radio News. Andrea wrote for the Progressive Magazine, sang with the award winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus, was a former Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University -- and was an avid golfer. We -- and the listeners -- will all miss her tremendously.
