Bill Sherard has deep Virginia heritage in radio. I started my broadcast career as a high school student in Big Stone Gap, deep in the valleys of Southwest Virginia. During college in Richmond, I worked full-time as a nighttime teen DJ on a legendary top 40 radio station, WLEE. Years later I was lucky to work with partners who provided me with ownership at two Alexandria, VA radio stations, which we later sold to Group W Broadcasting. Then I was able to build my own radio group of 9 stations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Illinois. I’ve never lost my love for radio, after 60 years. I’m proud to operate radio stations here in the Northern Neck. I believe in the power of radio to help a local community be a better place. WIGO Country, BAY FM and our great team here are hopefully a testament to that.
