LARRY STEELE has been tapped for OM duties at BETHUNE-COOKMAN UNIVERSITY's WELE (THE CAT 1380-A)/DAYTONA BEACH, FL. The for-profit station is planning a Talk format dealing with community issues.
Chairman of the BC-U Leadership Group LYNN THOMPSON told ALL ACCESS, "I have been a LARRY STEELE fan since ATLANTA. His relationship with B-CU has grown over time, it began when he did PA work at sporting events for us. Therefore when we made the decision to grow our program, LARRY was the person we turned to because he is a consummate broadcast professional with a tremendous radio background. We are proud to have him as part of our school. LARRY loves to give back and this will give him the opportunity to lead and develop the next generation of leaders. This opportunity is in line with his family and his faith."
DEMPS MEDIA CONSULTING's BRUCE DEMPS added, "I am excited for BETHUNE to have a guy with a lot of experience and know how that can be utilized to help Mass Communications students and the community as well."
STEELE said, "I want to thank BC-U Pres. EDISON O. JACKSON, LYNN THOMPSON, and BRUCE DEMPS for this tremendous opportunity. My job will be to make sure this station is run professionally and with the same precision as the best commercial facilities. I want to help the Mass Communications students of BETHUNE-COOKMAN be the best they can be. There comes a time in your life when you want to do something that makes a difference and for me this is it. I'm honored this historically Black University chose me."
LARRY most recently served as PD for Urban AC WTMP (1150-A)/TAMPA, FL.
