A member of the ‘Steve Harvey Morning Show’ family was found dead at the W hotel in Atlanta over Memorial Day weekend.

When he didn’t hear from him, comedian Keir Spates asked the staff at the W hotel to check on his best friend and assistant Bryan Cooke early Sunday morning. When hotel staff knocked on the door and didn’t get an answer, they entered the room and found him lying unresponsive on the bed.

They tried to wake him but it was too late. Cooke was pronounced dead on the scene.

Spates is a comedian on the Steve Harvey Morning Show on FM radio. He goes by the stage name JUNIOR and told the hotel staff that the two were supposed to catch a flight to Los Angeles and that it wasn’t like Cooke to not answer his calls.

Spates told police that they had gone out Saturday night but returned to their separate hotel rooms around 3 a.m.
