Hamilton had been battling cancer.

Former Main Street Host Doug Hamilton has passed away from cancer. He was 72 years old.

He had worked at numerous other radio and television stations throughout his career, and retired from Minnesota State University Moorhead before coming to Prairie Public in 2012. He left last year after his cancer had returned.

Hamilton was appreciated by his audience for his professional interview style and was regarded warmly by his colleagues here.

Doug is survived by his son, Ben. His daughter, Ashley died in a car crash near her home in Spokane, Washington in December 2020.

We will miss him.
