Lew Carter

Founder and Former Chairman of the Board of Directors

Lew Carter, one of WRKF’s founders and former WRKF board chairman, passed away on Friday, June 26 2015.  Lew’s association with WRKF began in 1976, when he met with the group that would see the station go on the air in 1980. When another host planning a big band radio show quit, Lew took over and continued as an on-air host until April 2015. In a statement, WRKF’s current board chair, Bob Mann, said, “We’ll miss Lew Carter’s friendly smile and stories — and his unique insight about radio. We’ll find inspiration remembering his legendary work ethic, community service, and kindness.”
