Premo Mondone, the founder of Red State Talk Radio, has passed away at the age of 59. According to reports, Mondone died of a sudden heart attack on Saturday afternoon. He was found at his computer doing what he loved, working on Red State Talk Radio.

He began hosting the Red State Town Hall in January of 2009, with his co-host Ken Brown.

    I was going to leave this broadcast in my will. I have no children or relatives. I wanted to support freedom. Now where do I go?
