Tami Trivisonno & Mike Trivisonno
Trivisonno married his girlfriend Tami on April 1, 2011, in Las Vegas two years after his first wife died. Details surrounding Tami’s personal life remain unclear as she has tended to stay out of the spotlight over the years. She was however mentioned on Facebook by Billy Fischer on January 5th, 2021 in a post that reads, “It was great to come home to see my siblings and my son! Missed my daughter, son-in-law, and grandkid who are in Florida 🙃 but I want to thank Tami Trivisonno for the reason why we came home and arranged the surprise for Mike on NYE! 😷 I stayed 5’2 feet away (oh that’s my height sorry😁) 6ft away except for this short video pic to say Happy New Year everyone! ”
His first wife was a high school sweetheart Linda (née Conforto), who died of lung and brain cancer in 2009, at age 61. The couple have three children, two sons and a daughter, and two grandchildren.
Mike Trivisonno Death & Cause
Mike Trivisonno who was known as one of Cleveland, Ohio’s most popular and polarizing radio talk show hosts, has passed away on Friday, October 28, 2021. He was 72. Born in East Cleveland, “Triv” attended Mayfield High School and is survived by his wife, Tami, his son Michael, his son Anthony and daughter Michelle.
Those who worked with Trivisonno said he died suddenly, but his cause of death was not publicly announced on the radio.
Lyndhurst police confirmed to 19 News that Trivisonno, who was born and raised in Northeast Ohio, was taken from his home following a medical incident to an area hospital just after noon on Thursday. Trivisonno was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2008 and had surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. He repeatedly stated on air that he was vaccinated against COVID-19.
Carl Monday wrote in a tribute, “Mike Trivisonno & I had a very public running battle. Triv took exception to an investigation I aired on Fox8 in 2001 involving the “Coats for Kids” program…and he never let me forget it. The “fued” went national. (Even Howard Stern jumped into the Fray.) We later sparred over a story I did on one of his major sponsors. What he probably never knew…Is that I always felt he was a brilliant broadcaster and worthy of the term “Local radio legend.” And counted myself among his loyal listeners. Triv leaves behind a huge void on Cleveland’s airways.”
