Friends of veteran radio newsman Mike Pierce gathered Thursday at WMOX where he worked until his illness made it impossible in his honor.

Pierce, 56, died this week of lung cancer.

"He never met a stranger. He was always a friend to everyone. You couldn't ever meet him without smiling, even if were having a bad day or if you were having some problems he would always make it better," said friend Al Brown of Meridian.

Pierce will be missed by his many listeners and friends.
