*In the small, tight-knit Cape Cod radio community, Eric Christensen was a fixture for years, first at iHeart’s stations and more recently at the Cape Cod Radio cluster that just changed hands to the new Coxswain Communications group.
Christensen, whose real name was Eric Anzalone, did events and promotions and was on the air as “Eric the Prozak” at “Frank” WFRQ (93.5) and its sister stations – but he was much more, too.
“He was always there. He had your back. He did airport pickups. He drove to transmitter sites in storms. He was THEEE Wingman. But most importantly he was the fiercest of friends,” said Coxswain OM Steve McVie Solomon in a Facebook post as news spread of Christensen’s death Wednesday night.
Police found Christensen on the floor of his Hyannis kitchen and rushed him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound. Investigators found a bullet hole in the kitchen window, but so far that’s all they’ve said about the killing, which has left Christensen’s many friends on the Cape distraught and puzzled.
The Cape Cod native was just 50.
