The death of WRAN

WRAN reborn (sort of...)



We are sad to report the passing of Jackie Rose in February 2023. It made me sad when I heard this. Jackie trained me the night I auditioned for my job at WRAN, and encouraged PD Mike Ofsanka to hire me. Thank you, Jackie, for the photos and memories you sent. Rest in Peace.

How can one describe the feeling of getting your very first business card from a radio station?

Did this mean that Jackie could park anywhere and not get a ticket?


It warms the former WRAN chief engineer's heart to see a DJ taking transmitter readings!

For you kids, what newsman Frank Anthony is sitting next to is something they used to call a typewriter.

Taking requests.

Thank you, Jackie, for sharing these wonderful photos with us.
