People lined up to pay their respects to Amos Brown, a local broadcast legend and fixture in the Indianapolis community.

A visitation for Brown was held Friday afternoon with family, city leaders, government officials and loyal listeners showing up to remember him.

"He was an amazing voice, he was an amazing voice of advocacy he did his homework and knew where the issues were and then he made sure that he connected people to the solvers of those problems," said Vop Osili, City-County Council Member.

Brown passed away unexpectedly while visiting family in the Chicago area. He reportedly suffered a heart attack while at his family's home.

The longtime broadcaster was known for his show Afternoons with Amos on WTLC 1310. He was passionate about bettering the city and helping causes like the Mozel Sanders Foundation. Brown was inducted into the Indiana Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2007.
