WGRC/Lewisburg, PA morning co-host Stephanie Hines has left the station. She co-host the morning show with Operations Manager Dave Jones. She joined the station in Oct 2019. WGRC is looking to fill the position asap, check HERE for listing.
Stephanie told HisAir today, “I enjoyed my time at WGRC with both the morning show and doing marketing and event planning. I felt God calling me to leave and pursue another ministry opportunity in Pittsburgh. I still hope to keep my vocal chords warm and do some radio work. The verse Gods been using in my life through this transition is Psalm 119:105 speaking to Him lighting my path but not promising more than what I can see directly in front of me. It’s been a faith journey for sure as I still feel radio is my calling.”
