V-103 morning host Ryan Cameron has gotten divorced from his wife Kysha after 16 years of marriage.

I don't have any confirmed details why their marriage didn't work out, but Cameron provided a short statement through his attorney Randy Kessler .

"I'm so fortunate to have had a partner like Kysha, who can move through life's changes with such grace and beauty," Cameron wrote Friday. "We look forward to co-parenting and continuing to raise our three amazing children."

Cameron and Kysha have two kids together: 13-year-old son Cayden and 15-year-old daughter Kai. He also has a daughter from a previous relationship Ryan Megan, who is 18.

In 2015, the couple received a Legendary Award and accepted it together, where they were honored for their work with the Ryan Cameron Foundation, which they created together in 2002 and provides leadership skills to youth. 

"This woman to my left saved my life when she decided to marry me," Ryan told the audience. "I want to say that even though she doesn't get a lot of acclaim or accolades, her belief in kids and her belief in me is what sustains our family. It's what sustains our organization. It's what sustains me each and every day."

The divorce was finalized at least two months ago, but Ryan has chosen to keep it quiet from the public. I heard about their break up from two sources this week and checked in with Kessler, which led to the statement.

His V-103 colleague Frank Ski this week announced his engagement to Dr. Patrice Basanta-Henry after divorcing his long-time wife Tanya a couple of years earlier.

Cameron hosts a popular father-daughter dance every June to raise money for his non-profit organization. He also holds an annual celebrity-filled Thanksgiving bowling event.

An Atlanta native, 50-year-old Cameron is a radio legend and Georgia Radio Hall of Fame inductee who has made his mark in this market for more than a quarter century with both V-103 and Hot (when it was at 97.5).
