In 1972, Dennis Jones was part of Moody Bible Institute’s first graduating class with the new major, “Broadcast Communications”. That summer he secured a ‘temporary, summer announce position’ with WRVM/Suring WI. It was a LONG summer! At the end of April of this year, Dennis will be retiring after nearly 45 years at WRVM.
