In honor of Plasker's legacy, KCBD reportedly held an on-air tribute on Sunday night, during which she was described as a bright spot on weekend mornings.

According to the station, Plasker worked with them for three years before her death. Though a cause of death was not given, a news anchor at the station, Kase Wilbanks, urged viewers to seek help if they were struggling with suicidal thoughts.


Plasker's passing comes a few years after her son, Thomas, died by suicide in February of 2018, just two weeks away from his 20th birthday.

Suicide is reported to be the second-leading cause of death in young people between the ages of 10 and 34. 

While Plasker's cause of death remains unknown, there is no doubt that she will be missed by her loved ones and many who fell in love with her through their television screens.
