Legendary Radio Personality
With a broadcast career spanning over 40 years, Silas “SiMan” is perhaps best known for his signature on-air catchphrase – “When I say SiMan, you say Baby! SiMan Bayebaay!”
Over the years, he has touched the ears and lives of millions of listeners across the nation, and his love and knowledge of music encompassed all genres – Jazz, Country, Gospel, Top 40, Urban, and Heavy Metal. His smooth, soulful voice, charismatic style, infectious personality, phenomenal knowledge of the industry, humility, and genuine love for people set him apart, and on an uncharted path to hosting award-winning radio shows at V-103-FM, KISS 104.7-FM, KISS 104.1-FM, Classic Soul 102.5-FM, and Majic 107.5-FM in the Atlanta metropolitan area. In 2018, “SiMan” was inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame.
Beyond the studio, and away from the microphone, “Si” quietly impacted the lives of thousands more. His selfless acts of generosity, mentoring, and support to others and community causes were frequent and numerous, including aspiring youth, industry peers, community first responders, the March of Dimes, the Sickle Cell Foundation, the Diabetes Association of Atlanta, Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry and Homeless, the South Metro Chapter of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, the United Way of Metro Atlanta, the American Diabetes Association, and many more.
On January 4, 2022, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms presented Silas “SiMan” Alexander, III with the “Phoenix Award” – the City’s highest award given to an individual or organization.
Preserving a Legacy
The SiMan Stay Positive Foundation was founded to honor the legacy and celebrate the life of Silas “SiMan” Alexander III. Our mission is to continue to do the work that was important to SiMan, and to look for new opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others.
We will continue to work with organizations like the March of Dimes, the Sickle Cell Foundation, the Diabetes Association of Atlanta, Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry and Homeless, the South Metro Chapter of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, the United Way of Metro Atlanta, Morehouse School of Medicine (Pancreatic Cancer Research), and the American Diabetes Association, but as an independent organization, we will look for unique opportunities to make a difference in the world through giving, education, mentoring, and so much more.
SiMan gave back – always. This foundation will ensure that his memory will always represent who he was as a man and a professional. We are committed to social justice and other community empowerment causes that will make Atlanta and the nation a better, stronger place for all of us. If you are interested in working with the foundation, either by volunteering or donating, use this form to contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
