On WEDNESDAY (7/30), DES MOINES radio veteran DIC YOUNGS of the SAGA COMMUNICATIONS Adult Standards KRNT-A "ORIGINAL SATURDAY NIGHT OLDIES SHOW" had a portion of Maple Street in DES MOINES named after him in a street sign unveiling ceremony.
YOUNGS began his career in radio at the age of 16 at KIOA-A (940), where he worked for 42 years at Oldies KIOA/DES MOINES most recently as afternoon host.
DES MOINES RADIO GROUP GM BILL WELLS commented, "We chose a street by EAST HIGH SCHOOL because that’s DIC's alma mater and he’s a proud SCARLET. We’ve been proud to be a part of making DIC’s 'ORIGINAL SATURDAY NIGHT OLDIES SHOW,' a destination for decades on the radio. Now DIC himself will be a destination."
