Radio Legend,   TnRHOF Inductee    Luther Masingill Passes Away

A member of our first class of the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame, Luther Masingill, age 92, died in his sleep with his loving family by his bed side 6am Monday morning October 20, 2014.

Luther is an icon in our business. He only worked at one station, a feat in and of itself! Luther started at Chattanooga' s WDEF radio in 1941 and has been there until this day. He is recognized as the only talent in America who was on the air during the two attacks on America, when Pearl Harbor was bombed AND when the twin towers of NYC were  destroyed.

In Chattanooga, the airwaves were full of tributes to a radio legend. Our TRHOF family extends prayers for his family and his city. Radio was blessed to have had a talent like the legendary Luther Masingill
