FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Local Radio Station Group Announces Exciting Changes
Anderson, South Carolina – August 10, 2013 – Ervin Broadcasting, LLC, announced today that it has entered into a Time Brokerage Agreement with the owners of WRIX, 103.1 FM WRIX-AM and WANS-AM and will handle the programming and day-to-day operations of the stations effective immediately.
Ervin Broadcasting, LLC, is owned by Tom Ervin, a Honea Path native and graduate of Belton Honea Path High School. Ervin went on to graduate Erskine College and the USC School of Law. He served two terms in the S.C. General Assembly representing Belton, Honea Path, Starr and Iva and was elected as the youngest circuit court judge ever in S.C. serving Anderson and Oconee Counties. After retiring from the bench, Ervin served as the first president of Foothills Community Foundation and later as CEO of Anderson County United Way. He now practices law with his wife Kathryn Williams in Greenville.
“Our immediate focus is to continue to provide positive programming for this great community. Local radio is special…special to its loyal listeners, special to its advertisers and it is special to me. Our mission is to provide quality programs, delivered in a professional manner, that focus on the latest news, sports, weather, and stories of local interest to our listening audience. Folks will hear some new and exciting things but they will also be able to tune in to some of the core programming that has always been the cornerstone of WRIX and its sister stations” says Tom Ervin.
South Carolina Gamecock sports and Belton-Honea Path High School football are two key pieces of that core programming that fans can look forward to this fall.
“This is South Carolina and football is king so WRIX and its sister stations will not only maintain the excellent play-by-play broadcasts of the Gamecocks and BHP Bears but you will hear expanded sports coverage thru our daily program line up and specialty programs” notes Mr. Ervin.
Mr. Ervin also says that listeners will enjoy the new “sound” of the stations over the next few months and the ability to interact with the on-air hosts on a variety of topics from the local to the regional to the national arena.
“This is such a great opportunity to give this community a voice. And we have a great group of stations to be the vehicle for that voice. I could not be more proud or excited to call these stations home” adds Ervin.
