Source PerthNow: Popular Mix 94.5 radio presenter, Ian Blackley, "Blackers", had a heart attack yesterday afternoon on-air.

The radio station's website said that "Blackers" called in the content director Russell Clarke complaining of pain in his chest, with "tingles" in his arms.

Staff at the station immediately rushed the 52-year-old to Sir Charles Gairdner hospital.

He was in a stable condition in intensive care last night.

The website has a message, "We're extremely proud of Blackers for acting so quickly and identifying the seriousness of the situation... otherwise it could have been a far worse outcome."
