The Life and Legacy of WHUR’s Patrick Ellis

Patrick lost his battle with COVID-19 on Thursday, July 16th.

We remember the rich, melodious, baritone voice and the bottomless giving of one of Patrick Ellis. His life was as impactful on the air as it was off.  Ellis was the host of WHUR’s Sunday Gospel Spirit show. It was a staple in the DMV community.  He reigned supreme over Sunday morning radio for more than four decades. He also was a giant in the community when it came to giving back.
