Caroline Corley, a longtime radio personality heard throughout New York City's northern suburbs on Westchester’s 107.1 FM The Peak, died Monday. She was 52 years old.
According to Corley's ex-husband, the DJ collapsed shortly after returning home from her "Coffee with Caroline" morning show.
"My former wife Caroline Mure Corley suddenly just died this morning. Apparently felt dizzy and a neighbor somehow got involved and called the medics who got there quickly," Christopher Corley wrote on social media, UPI.com reported.
"But after working with her for somewhere around 30-45 minutes, they were unable to revive her. This was after she had done her morning show at 107.1 The Peak, which she loved doing."
LoHud.com reports that a neighbor witnessed Corley
being short of breath when she arrived home from her show that ended at 10 a.m. The neighbor then called an ambulance which took her to Westchester Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Details as to what caused Corley's collapse and death were not reported.
At the time of her death, Corley had reportedly been mourning that passing of her adopted dog chocolate Labrador retriever Mick Jagger – named after the famous rocker.
According to Westchester’s 107.1 FM's website, Corley began her radio career at Georgia State University in Atlanta, before moving on to Denver, where she claims to have been "fired from every (yes, EVERY) rock station." She eventually wound up at 107.1 FM, where she had been broadcasting for the past decade.
"I only got this job because I told Chris Herrmann that I lived 3 miles from The Peak and if anybody ever called in sick I could be here in, like, 10 minutes," Corley's joked in her online profile.
Corley was remembered by her friends and fans through numerous posts on her Facebook page this week.
"So sad to hear of the loss Caroline Mure Corley," rocker Charles Scopoletti wrote on her page. "She touched so many lives every morning on 107.1 The Peak and was such a huge personality with a great sense of humor. I was honored to be called her "boyfriend" amongst the many others...She will be missed!"
"It was a very lonely ride to work today for many of us," fan Josephine Fazzino Booth wrote on Facebook. "Caroline made everyday enjoyable and will be missed and remembered by her Peak listeners."
