Condolences to family and friends of longtime AC WHLN-A/HARLAN, KY owner, President, GM, and PD JIM MORGAN, who died FRIDAY in LEXINGTON, KY after a long illness at 84. MORGAN worked at the station after WORLD WAR II and ascended to GM by the late 1950's and took over ownership in 1986. He transferred the station to his son earlier this year.
The station won a Peabody Award for its coverage of HARLAN COUNTY's 1977 flood coverage.
