It's Our 30th Anniversary! Support WNCW & Stay Warm with Our New Sunrise Hoodie
Wow. It's really hard to believe we have been on the air for more than 30 years! We have always been listener supported and we are so very thankful for all of the donations that have kept us alive and well for three decades.
Earlier this year we had a contest to see who could come up with the collest logo to celebrate our "Big Three Oh." The winner hands down was Rob Hibbitts who came up with this wonderful sunrise design.
We called upon 20 different judges to help choose their favorite logo, and nine of them chose Hibbitts' vibrant graphic as their number one choice out of 28 submissions. Many judges included his work in their second and third choices.
Hibbitts, who was born and raised in Tennessee, now lives in Thomasville, NC and spends lots of time in Asheville and Madison County, NC. It was his love of the terrain, the beginning of a new day, and the faithfulness of WNCW fans that inspired his drawing.
"It always humbles me when I see the sun come up over the mountains in the morning and I know I've made it another day," said Hibbitts. "Listening to the radio station is a humbling experience too, knowing how many people have always supported it, over the years, the way they do."
True that Mr. Hibbitts! WNCW has been listener-supported since 1989 when staffers first opened up the mic and went LIVE on Friday, October 13 in Spindale, NC on the campus of Isothermal Community College.
