One of the emblematic voices of the contemporary Cuban locution, Ibrahim Aput Eybaiter, died this Monday at the age of 91.

He became the dean of Cuban announcers and the winner of the 2009 National Radio Award, Aput worked in the last decades at Radio Reloj, where, from the microphones, he trained several generations of radio professionals.

Sad news: our Speaker and Teacher Ibrahim Aput, 2009 National Radio Awardee, who was an example of ethics, perseverance and professional quality, passed away. To his relatives and colleagues at Radio Reloj, his beloved radio station, our most heartfelt condolences.

When he was only 19 years old, he started working at the radio station of his native town of San Luis, in Santiago de Cuba, where he unexpectedly had to make a substitution in the booth, which allowed him stepping into a world that he always recognized as fascinating and committed to the public.

The late announcer Ibrahim Aput also toured both the national radio and the national television where he won numerous awards, but above all, he obtained the recognition of an audience that will now miss one of the identifying voices of Radio Reloj.
