The MACON, GA radio market lost one of its legends this week when OSCAR LEVERETTE passed away THURSDAY, APRIL 21st, at age 68.
His career started at WNEX-A when he was still in high school, and his most recent project was his partnership in a start-up local station, THE FOX 94.7. During nearly 20 years as OM of WAYS, WMAZ, WPEZ, WDDO and WMGB, LEVERETTE gave many young broadcasters their starts in radio, and took many chances on people with no experience - but a lot of potential.
An OSCAR LEVERETTE MEMORIAL BROADCAST JOURNALISM SCHOLARSHIP is being established. The scholarship fund will be administered by THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL GEORGIA, 577 Mulberry St., Suite 1600, MACON, GA, 31201.
