Midday host DAWN WHEELER steps away from her duties at PILLAR OF FIRE Contemporary Christian WAWZ (STAR 99.1)/NEW YORK, effective TODAY.
DAWN explained on her FACEBOOK page, "It is with mixed emotions that I announce today is my last day at STAR 991. Working here for over 11 years has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, and quite literally a dream come true. I have loved serving GOD through this station and sharing hope, love, and encouragement in such a unique way. However, after much prayer I have decided the time has come for me to leave STAR 991 and prepare for the arrival of my little bundle of joy! I am looking forward to this new season of life, becoming a mom, and enjoying this precious gift.
"There are a few people I'd like to thank who made this season of life possible. First, to JOHNNY STONE, who took the time to teach me pretty much everything I know about radio; to STACEY STONE and DAVID A DEIN, who I was privileged to sit around the 'biggest kitchen table in the tri- state area' with and create some of the best memories one could ask for. Thank you to BETH BACALL for being my biggest cheerleader and amazing mentor, and to KEITH STEVENS who encouraged me to follow my dream! I'd also like to thank THERESE ROMANO for giving me the opportunity to do the mid-day shift and to the STAR 991 listening family.
"It has been a privilege getting to know the STAR 991 listeners over so many years and I will greatly miss talking with you each day. I have been humbled when you have taken time to share your personal stories, your prayer requests and your joys. Most importantly, I'd like to thank GOD for opening every door of opportunity and for allowing me to joyfully run through them!"
