Philadelphia City Council Chairman Darrell Clarke said on Twitter, “Cody has been a pioneer and giant in broadcast journalism in the Philadelphia black community for decades. He was a cohesive, constructive, and confident voice on the air. He encouraged people of color to enter politics, serve people and make their communities better places to live. A symbol of positivity, class and success for our community is gone. It is now up to us to continue in his memory and in the service of others. Stay in power, my good friend.
