WBVR/Bowling Green Honors Scooter Davis With Moment Of Silence
June 29, 2016 at 8:02 AM (PT)
FOREVER MEDIA Country WBVR (BEAVER 96.7)/BOWLING GREEN, KY honored the late SCOOTER DAVIS with a moment of silence at 10a (CT) TODAY (6/29), in recognition of DAVIS’ 34 years with the station as PD/mornings. DAVIS died last WEEK after battling cancer (NET NEWS 6/24). He was not only a fixture at THE BEAVER, but in the market too, and other stations in BOWLING GREEN joined in today’s moment of silence – a counterintuitive move for radio, but one that demonstrated the impact DAVIS had in the community. ANDY MORGAN of FOREVER MEDIA/BOWLING GREEN told ALL ACCESS after THE BEAVER announced its intentions on the air and on its FACEBOOK page, the radio community responded without being asked, and joined in honoring DAVIS.
WBVR afternoon personality and interim PD ALAN AUSTIN told the staff in an email, “It is a bit ironic that we are honoring this radio legend with dead air, when that is what he tried to avoid his entire career.”
