Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, released the following statement:

"I was deeply saddened to hear about the tragic and untimely passing of Sheila Stewart today. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends, and colleagues. Sheila was a not only a great Prince Georgian, but she was also my friend.

Over her 20 year career in radio, Sheila was a popular on-air personality with the residents of Prince Georges County and, more importantly, an organizer of charitable giving, support, and engagement throughout our communities. She understood that good business meant being a good corporate citizen. She represented Radio One with the utmost professionalism, passion, and persistence in working with our Countys faith community, non-profits, and the County government itself.

During her many years as a Prince Georgian, Sheila was always a proud and strong advocate of the County and exemplified the talented professionals who live and work in this County."
