The world of sports and communication is mourning the sad loss of Pepe Domingo Castaño, the legendary radio broadcaster, who passed away at the age of 80. For seven decades, he has been a constant presence on the radio, but unfortunately, many listeners will no longer be able to hear his voice on the other side of the transistor.
Cadena Cope, where he worked in his final years, paid tribute to him throughout Sunday, but the most emotional tribute took place on ‘El partidazo de COPE’, presented by Juanma Castaño. There, his colleagues shared anecdotes and memories of Pepe Domingo Castaño with deep emotion. The most touching moment came when Paco González, his inseparable radio partner, called into the program to recount the final hours of his friend’s life.
Paco González revealed that Pepe Domingo Castaño had been suffering from a throat infection two Saturdays ago, and after a change in treatment, he felt very tired towards the end of the week. Despite his youngest son telling them there was no solution, nobody expected his condition to worsen so much and so quickly.
The cause of death was a persistent throat infection that did not respond to antibiotics, along with an intestinal complication that left Pepe in critical condition and ultimately resulted in sepsis.
The sad news of Pepe Domingo Castaño’s death has left everyone who knew and admired his talent and charisma in the world of sports radio devastated. His legacy will endure in the memory of fans and colleagues who had the privilege of listening to him and working with him.
