We know that Allison Payne’s cause of death has yet not been clarified by a close source; however, rumors have it that she had been suffering from myriad health problems for a long time.
It is said she passed away on Wednesday, September 1, in her hometown of Detroit. Tyra Martin, one of Alisson’s co-workers, expressed: “While so many journalists worry about the list of questions they want to ask…”
She shared: “She taught me the most important part of an interview is the listening. That even if you don’t ask the right questions, if you listen well enough, the story will reveal itself.”
Due to her health problems, she had left her career as an anchor. Also, between January and August in 2008, Payne was suffered from mini-strokes, which let her go under treatment for depression.
Leaving the WGN-TV, the beloved anchor shared with the public about her bad hobby of consuming alcohol: “I’m having trouble with my vocal cords.” Rolands Martin tweeted: “Damn…”
It was added: “Just got the news that longtime @WGNTV anchor Allison Payne has died. She was 57. Allison was a sweet, kind woman, a great anchor, who had an adorable smile. She suffered a lot of health issues last several years. Gone so soon.”
