WayFM announces the pending retirement of Thom Ewing, longtime Station Manager of WayFM Huntsville, Alabama. Ewing was hired in 2002 as the founding General Manager of WAYH-FM, and has been the only manager in the station’s history. He eventually led additional WayFM expansion into several other Alabama cities, including Birmingham and Gadsden.
“It’s been a calling, a joy, a challenge, and so much more to serve our communities for 18 years in Alabama’s WayFM,” says Ewing. “I am believing for God’s best for our Alabama team and my friends around WAY Nation as they continue to touch this generation and influence them to love and follow Jesus.”
Ewing exemplified the WayFM difference, which is a combination of network and local station execution for a great radio product that can change lives and impact a city. He worked tirelessly towards local promotions and community involvement at his radio station(s). He created and launched several long-standing community efforts in Huntsville and across AL, including the annual “Christmas Prayers” program, which matched people with needs with available resources in the area.
Jim Marshall, VP of Operations, adds, “Thom has made a significant impact on his community through Alabama’s WayFM. Without his hard work and dedication, the ministry in that community would not have grown like it has. I value the way he has allowed God to use his skills and abilities to further the Kingdom all of these years. I wish the best for Thom and Sue in this new chapter of their lives.
John Scaggs, CEO, adds “Thom Ewing has been a model GM for WayFM. For years and years, he and his team rolled up their sleeves and co-labored to make WayFM in Huntsville a station that impacted thousands of lives.”
