Bruce Garraway


BruceGarraway3A seminal figure at the station, Bruce brought a high level of professionalism to the organization and has been called the 'Heart and Soul' of the station, very well respected by all of the WOWI crew and owner Stewart Brinsfield, Jr.

Garraway's long career with the station started when he met George Kello on the morning of Feb 2, 1972, Bruce's last day in the Navy where he trained in Broadcast Journalism. Hired on the spot, Garraway did that afternoon shift and began to make his mark. He helped usher in a few parameters that flushed out what the djs played and still gave them the freedom that was a big part of the Progressive WOWI era.

Bruce left the station when it was sold and landed a slot at WNOR-FM for a while. We thank him for some of the fotos that are on Fbook and here. When we asked him about the station, he replied, "When we were good, we were REALLY good; and when we were bad, we were awful!" He lives and works in Norfolk.
