George Dickerson was one of the driving forces that launched WLRH in 1976, giving Huntsville the distinction of being home to Alabama's original public radio station. George served as the station's GM until his retirement in 2007 and wrote this wonderful history of WLRH. He passed away on Tuesday,, November 19th, 2013. The Tennessee Valley thanks George for the wonderful gift he left us. He continues to watch over the station in the George W. Dickerson Studio.
