WIBX 950 is saddened to pass on news that the father of a former WIBX SportsWatch host was found deceased this week in Otisco Lake in Onondaga County.

Douglas Axe, 68, of Camillus was discovered floating in the lake by a pair of kayakers on Tuesday afternoon, according to Syracuse.com.

His son Brent Axe was a former host of SportsWatch on WIBX 950. The younger Axe now works with the Syracuse Media Group, but has appeared on WIBX 950′s First News with Keeler in the Morning radio show to weigh-in on sports topics, including Syracuse University athletics and the Utica Comets – Syracuse Crunch AHL rivalry.

Authorities are still investigating, but believe the Douglas Axe’s death was accidental.

We at WIBX 950 offer our prayers and deepest condolences to the Axe family in this difficult time.
