Tom Hammett has joined Tennessee Temple University’s Southern Gospel WDYN-AM Chattanooga alongside radio vets Tom Sneed and Earl Freudenberg. “Dr. Tom,” as “Hey Earl” dubbed him several years ago, has served as a station volunteer for a number of years helping primarily during Share-a-thons and other special events. Recently, Bob Circeo, who hosted the Going Home program from 4:30-6 p.m., determined his assistance was needed in taking care of his aging sister’s declining health in Massachusetts. Bob moved to the Boston area on 7/4, according to The Chattanogan.
WDYN’s format also includes news, weather, traffic, feature stories, church services as well as a variety of Christian programming.
The WDYN staff and university officials say they aew are excited concerning the pending return to the FM radio band in the very near future. WDYN will broadcast on FM 94.9 when all arrangements are finalized.
Hammett’s background includes public speaking, recording studios, a love of radio and years of volunteer work at WDYN made. He hosts Going Home on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 4:30-6 p.m., and answers the telephone Prayer Line for the Wednesday morning Sonrise program with Earl Freudenberg from 7-9 a.m.
