Fans and friends have paid tribute to Melbourne breakfast radio host Richard Marsland, who was found dead in his car on a lonely stretch of road in Victoria's Dandenong Ranges.

A park ranger raised the alarm after finding the 32-year-old's body in his car at Shiprock Falls around 10.30am (AEDT) on Saturday but despite police resuscitation efforts, Marsland was later pronounced dead.

Victoria Police said an investigation had been launched and a brief would be passed to the state coroner but there were no suspicious circumstances.

Marsland started his radio career in Adelaide on SAFM, and went on to work for Fox FM, Triple J and Triple M. He also had several television credits to his name and was a regular writer for Rove Live as well as Shaun Micallef's SBS show Newstopia.

By Sunday, fans had flooded the website of Triple M, where Marsland co-hosted the breakfast program with Pete Helliar and Myf Warhurst.
