MILLER COMMUNICATIONS Country WGFG (KAT COUNTRY 105.3)/ORANGEBURG, SC OM/morning host RUSS T. FENDER is retiring after 27 years in the business.
In a farewell to listeners published in the ORANGEBURG TIMES AND DEMOCRAT, FENDER (a/k/a RUSS WOOD) wrote, "Now is the time for this amazing ride to come to an end. I am respectfully laying my headsets down, pushing the microphone away and stepping into the shadows. Time to, in theater parlance, 'Exit Stage Left.'
"I look forward to a cup of coffee at sunrise, not refracted through a studio window, and enjoying the sounds of rain on a tin roof without worry about lightning striking a radio tower. Attempting to live a normal life will be the biggest challenge yet and, who knows, before long I may be reaching out my hand to another venture saying, 'You can’t do this without me!'"
