Television and radio personality Bo Griffin, known as ‘Bo the Party Animal” in her home market of South Florida, has died of intestinal cancer at the age of 51.
Griffin, who successfully made the jump to television and worked on successful projects with networks such as GSN Live (The Game Show Network), HGTV and affiliates of Fox and NBC, was diagnosed just this past January with the disease. Griffin was also known for hosting the nationally syndicated relationship talk show Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. Griffin produced a line of clothing, called Goddess, sold in a boutique in her hometown of Greenville, South Carolina. (You can read a more in-depth bio for Griffin on HGTV’s website.)
Griffin was diagnosed with intestinal cancer after complaining of back pain last month. She is survived by her father and two sisters. In a statement, co-worker DJ Laz from Griffin’s days at Power 96 had this to say:
The world has lost an amazing talent today. Bo, you were my friend, my co-worker and my mentor for many years. You inspired everyone that was fortunate enough to hear your voice. May you rest in peace. God bless.”
