A Favorite Broadcaster Has ‘Signed Off’
by George Merritt
Here in the heart of the “Wiregrass” region, citizens have lost a great friend, and broadcasters have bidden farewell to a true mentor. Doug Holderfield has died at age 80. He owned WELB in Elba, AL almost 40 years and WVVL at Enterprise 31 years. “He knew the purpose of radio was to serve the community,” said Derek Snellgrove who worked for Holderfield and eventually purchased the Elba station.
I count myself fortunate to have met and talked with Holderfield on several occasions. As an ole radio man myself, I appreciated the quality programming and original local news (not just the church and community announcements called in). WVVL has for years been one of our finest stations in the Good Radio News line-up; and Doug Holderfield encouraged us much in our endeavors.
Power & the Glory Weekdays in Ashland, Alabama
A BIG WELCOME to radio station WCKF – FM 100.7 in Ashland, Alabama. Starting in July, Teresa Goodman and her staff will be airing Power & the Glory archived programs weekdays. WCKF plays country classics. The station is patriotic and is committed to the communities it serves and the principles that made America great. We are proud to be associated with what we believe is one of America’s great locally owned and operated radio stations.

Judging from listener response, two recent Power & the Glory broadcasts are among the listener favorites throughout the program’s 17 years. Both programs aired in April. The first is titled “When You Walk Through a Storm.” That was followed two weeks later by a baseball story we titled “Home Plate.” Both are available on CD and in print. To listen, open our Power & the Glory webpage and use the Sound Cloud to hear programs dated 04 09 17 and 04 23 17.
