Radio Host Found 'Strangled' To Death

A radio host has been found dead at his home in Lebanon.

Well-known British presenter Gavin Ford was reportedly discovered strangled with his hands tied behind his back. 

According to AAP, officials have confirmed Gavin Ford was murdered, which has led to security agents questioning his neighbours for details about who visited him prior to his death in his house near Beirut. 

It wasn't until Ford failed to show up to work that his Radio One colleagues contacted authorities.

The 65-year-old radio host is well-known in the radio world for hosting a morning programme on the all-music Radio One station. The day before his death was his birthday.

"We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our dear Gavin Ford, a member of our team for many joyful years," Radio One posted on its Facebook page.

Shocked listeners posted hundreds of comments after hearing the news.

"It feels like I lost someone close to me, despite having never seen him," said Vanig Bostanian. 

"For more than 20 years, Gavin has been making me smile on the way to school, to university, and to work," another fan said. 

"My mornings will never be the same without him."
