Fort Wayne Site of the Day

Media Monday continues for the next several weeks with a focus on radio stations.

I work for a group of 4 stations and when we get to them I'll be sure to let you know.

My radio connection grew from listening to the radio as a youth to actually working on the air as an announcer, as a disc-jockey, as a radio personality and in management as a Program Director.

It all began in the summer of 1975, between my sophomore and junior year of high school at Concordia in Fort Wayne. 30+ years ago, you had to pass a test and get a licence to be on the air and Concordia was starting a radio station.

If memory serves me correctly, there were about 30 students who volunteered to take a class that summer to learn and study for the Federal Communications Commission test, about 15 to 20 passed the test. That high school radio station started out as 10 watt WLHI at 88.3 FM.

Today it is a million dollar + operation as Star 88.3. Click on Pic for their website.
