Two year old son of radio personality drowns in pool
Rick Burgess, co-host of the syndicated radio program, the "Rick and Bubba Show", lost his son Bronner Burgess on Saturday. Bronner evidently drowned after falling into a swimming pool. He was only two years old.
Local police evidently responded to a 911 call about a drowning and transported Bronner to the local Children's Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Bill "Bubba" Bussey and Calvin "Speedy" Wilburn, also hosts on the show, both plan to be on the air Monday morning to "share their personal testimony with the community in this time of grief".
The family is holding a memorial service on Tuesday. Rick Burgess and his wife Sherri have four other children, Brandi, Blake, Brooks, and Brody.
