Radio personality Terrie Q. Sayre dies

Terrie Q. Sayre, a popular Albuquerque radio personality, died Thursday, according to 770 KKOB’s website.

Sayre worked in radio for more than 20 years, including about eight years in Albuquerque, where she hosted “Weekends,” “The 1050 Show” and “Weekly Edition.”

She was twice named one of Albuquerque’s Top 5 Talk Show Hosts by Albuquerque The Magazine, according to KKOB’s website. She was also an animal rights activist.

The cause of her death wasn’t known. Police said it wasn’t suspicious.

“She constantly promoted our pets on her show and she was a voice for the animals,” said Barbara Bruin, director of the Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department.

On the radio, Sayre put animals in the spotlight, but she also was hands-on and volunteered at fundraisers and other events that benefited animals, Bruin said.

“She walked the walk,” she said. “She elevated our cause, and we’ll miss her greatly.”

James Hallinan, a former city spokesman, said Sayre was a talented radio show host.

“She never told her audience what to think,” he said. “She empowered her audience to make their own opinions.”
