Big Dawg Remembers Mike Wilson

Our hearts are heavy today. The Big Dawg (Shoreline Communications) radio has lost a family member, Mike Wilson, who died Saturday morning after a brief illness. 

 

Mike moved to Green County in 1972 and built WGRK AM 1550 on top of Buckner Hill in Greensburg.

 

On New Year's Eve 1976 a fire destroyed the control studio of the radio station and, after the remodel construction was completed, Mike put a new FM Station on the air called Stereo 103-WGRK FM. Greensburg and all of Central Kentucky now had a new station that played mixed country and rock, broadcasting in FM Stereo.

 

In 1983 Mike switched the format on WGRK FM to all country and renamed the station K-Country FM 103.1.

 

The station achieved overnight success, quickly racing to the number one spot in the Arbitron rankings.

 

In 1993 Mike applied for and received the call letters "WAKY" the calls were put on the Greensburg AM and shortly thereafter he purchased WMQQ 102.7 in Springfield Ky and renamed it to WAKY FM. (Those calls are now in Elizabethtown on 103.5)

 

In 1996 WGRK-Country and WAKY AM/FM were sold to Commonwealth Broadcasting WGRK FM was moved out of Greensburg and relocated to Campbellsville where it still operates today on a different frequency.

 

In 2006 Shoreline Communications purchased 99.9 The Big Dawg and Mike was hired and returned to radio where we were able to work together again.

 

Mike dedicated his heart and soul to serving people and treating everyone with respect and at anytime time of the day Mike would be on the air doing weather or covering meetings.

 

Mike was a true professional and a man of ethics and I'll forever be grateful that he gave me my first radio job over 40 years ago. 

 

The Funeral is scheduled for 11am Friday at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home in Campbellsville, visatation begins Thursday at 5pm.
