Our celebration continues as we roll toward the 100th birthday of WHAS Radio, Louisville’s 50,000 watt blowtorch. Each week, I profile a former personality or station leader to reflect of the incredible history of Kentucky’s first licensed radio station.
Visit this link for my interviews with Gary Burbank, Liz Curtis, Doug McElvein, Cindi Sullivan, and Mark Levin.
Now on to more great conversations with WHAS Radio legends! We will continue these visits every Friday at 4:35 PM until the 100th birthday of WHAS on July 18, 2022.
🎧 #WHAS100 🎙 The brainiest of all @840WHAS colleagues is likely Barry Bernson. We chatted about his media career as a master storyteller, anchor, reporter, actor, narrator, and happy dad + grandfather.
