WWAB-AM slipped off the Internet – It’s an AM radio station in Lakeland Florida playing Gospel Music.
The owner died earlier this year, but the story takes an unexpected twist.
Richard Hughes lived to age 87, and two years ago transferred the station to his children – on a 10 year note for $200k, presumably for tax reasons, perhaps to protect the station from health care bills,
The surprise is that Richard Hughes was the father of the late Jerry Hughes, who had a syndicated radio show called “Straight Talk” on the defunct Accent Radio Network. Jerry Hughes died in 2012. The Accent Radio Network became a zombie when a Federal judge ruled that the radio show “Daniel Chapter One” was making health claims, hiding behind religious freedom. The judge ruled the FDA has more power than Jesus.
