WPGC's Shelby Austin Passes
May 4, 2011 at 5:26 AM (PT)
Condolences to the family and friends of SHELBY AUSTIN, who held the distinction of being WPGC's longest serving employee ever, a remarkable 38 year run from JULY 8, 1973 until her passing after a long illness on MAY 2, 2011.
She began her career at the station as a Sales assistant, continually working her way up the ranks to ultimately become the station’s Business Manager, a position she held for many years.
You can read her recollections of working at WPGC including her brief on-air stint, as well as view vintage shots of her at the station back in the day here.
