Certain names bring a smile to the faces of those born and raised in Chattanooga: Miss Marcia, Bob Brandy, Mort Lloyd, Dr. Shock, and, of course, "Luther." These are among the icons of Chattanooga broadcasting. They are the faces and voices that awakened Chattanoogans each morning, delivered the news, or made them laugh. Ever since two high school pals put the city's first radio station on the air in 1925, Chattanooga has been blessed with an abundance of memorable personalities. Some passed through on their way to national fame, while others have made Chattanooga their home for more than half a century.
David Carroll grew up as a fan of these broadcasters and later became a Chattanooga radio and television personality. His career has included a stint at AM top 40 radio giant WFLI, hosting The Morning Show on WDEF-TV for four years, and anchoring the evening news on WRCB-TV since 1987. His friendships with hundreds of local radio and television personalities bring their stories to life, providing an informative entertaining look at Chattanooga's broadcast history.
