Stacey Mott 1925-2016
Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame inductee Stacey Mott, who was in the Hall's Class of 2015, passed away July 2nd. His son, Jim, tells us Stacey went peacefully, with his wife, Betty, and daughters, Melinda and Betsy, nearby. The photo shows him with his daughters, and with Mike and Martin Medley, who nominated him for induction. Stacey worked at WHUB-AM & FM in Cookeville for 47 years. He managed the station for much of that time. He was also active in numerous civic groups that served Cookeville and Putnam County. On a larger scale, he was active in the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters and served a term as its Chairman. He was later honored with the group's Distinguished Service Award.
