For just over two years, five radio veterans brought local, personality radio back to Middle Georgia listeners on The Fox Classic Hits Network. The audience came to rely on Ben, Gail, Jim, Kim and Mary Therese, for great music and lots of useful local information. They came to rely on us during times of weather emergencies. And though we never faced anything like COVID-19, these five friends got back together, through social distancing, to talk about how we might be helping the listeners cope today.
