The founder and President of Sorensen Media Group, Rex Sorensen, has passed away. Sorensen Media Group operates radio and televisions stations in Guam and the CNMI. Prior to joining the media company in 1985, he was a Real Estate Investor-Developer in Hawaii. He is a former member of the Rotary Clubs of Guam and Tumon Bay.

“It’s hard to calculate the impact this man has had on the island. Countless organizations and people have been helped through the platforms Rex created and supported.  His tenacity was legendary; Guam truly has lost a titan of industry,” said SMG General Manager Shin Taira.  “We are also grieving for Rex’s children and his wife Mimi, who welcomed all of our employees into their family. On their behalf, we thank everyone for their prayers and loving thoughts extended during this heartbreaking time.”

Sorensen was raised in California, and has been living in Guam with his wife Mimi for almost three decades. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.S. in Accounting and Finance. He is survived by his three children and wife.

Sorensen was 73 years old.
