It is with a heavy heart that we announce that afternoon host Bob Durgin will retire after 24 years on air with WHP. The last Bob Durgin Show will air on Friday, August 2, from a yet to be determined live location so that listeners and friends can say farewell.
Durgin started at WHP580 in 1989 and has been one of the top-rated shows in the mid-state since. Born in Boston, he entered the U.S. Air Force and began his radio career in AFRTS Europe in 1964. Durgin later spent 20 years in Oklahoma City as News Director for KTOK.
We will begin an active search for a new afternoon host, but he is leaving one big cowboy hat for us to fill. We wish him well!!
