WayFM SW & North Florida GM Tom Sullivan checks in with HisAir with an update in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. Tom tells HisAir, “All of our team members here are fine, several waiting for power to be restored in our homes. Station is fine with 89.5 never losing its signal during the storm. We’re working to provide ongoing relief information to our listeners and web users. We are truly grateful for everyone’s prayers and help in the wake of the most destructive hurricane in this area’s history. I’ve been contacted by several friends in the Christian music industry checking on us and praying for us. It’s very humbling and most appreciated.”
WGRC/Lewisburg PD/mornings Dave Jones welcomed his new co-host Wanda Miller on Monday October 3, 2022. The show has been rebranded as Dave & Wanda In The Morning and airs 5 till 9 each weekday morning.
Dave told HisAir he knew from the initial interview that Wanda would be a great fit for WGRC, noting that “her personality, humor, and most importantly her love for Jesus, is going to connect amazingly well with listeners.”
Wanda is excited for the opportunity and states “I love getting to know people and connecting with their hearts. Working at the radio station will allow me to do that and also to talk about the peace and the hope that I have personally experienced through Jesus.”
