It is with great sadness that we report that a friend and colleague of WFLN passed away recently.
Ann Dever, of Placida, Fl., was the kind of woman that was involved in the community, in her life, and with us here at WFLN. Ann was an avid fisherperson and traveled extensively seeking out the one that got away. Ann also hosted the Monday edition of “All About Women” on WFLN. She always had the listener foremost in her mind and wanted to provide the latest and up to date information on what ever topic she was discussing on the air.

We will miss Ann and her smile each Monday and everyday for that matter. I can’t help but think that if Ann had started her radio career much earlier, she would have been out on the bay in the early morning sun with a fishing pole in one hand and a microphone in the other.

General Manager WFLN

Jim Sherwood serves as chief creative, brand strategist, lead developer, meticulous project manager, and station collaborator for all Skyrocket Radio sites and projects.

Jim got his start in radio at WLSM in the small town of Louisville, MS in 1988. Since then he has worked on-air in all day parts and has held nearly every other station position at one time or another. Jim has worked for radio stations in several states and for iHeartMedia (Clear Channel Radio), CBS Radio, Cumulus Broadcasting and a few small locally-owned stations. He even hosted a morning show on an aircraft carrier for two years while in the Navy. Jim has a passion for radio history, music, gadgets and all kinds of geeky web stuff.

After 14 years at Clear Channel Radio, Jim left the industry in 2013 to devote full-time attention to his company, Mediagin Creative, a small freelance creative agency that develops WordPress websites as well as produces commercials for radio and TV. After being asked by the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters to speak to a panel of small market station owners about the need for better websites, it became apparent that an easy to use and low-cost solution was needed to assist smaller markets in competing for online ad dollars. Skyrocket Radio was born.
