David Carroll grew up surrounded by the sights and sounds of Chattanooga broadcasting. His earliest memories include learning to tell time by watching Miss Marcia on TV’s “Fun Time,” wishing he could sit on Rebel and throw for a silver dollar on the “Bob Brandy Show,” and being mesmerized by the deep voice of Mort Lloyd delivering the evening news.
As a teenager, David began his radio career in South Pittsburgh, Tennessee before making it to the “Great Jet-Fli,” WFLI, the 50,000 watt rock ‘n roll voice of Chattanooga. David was the first voice on the city’s powerful KZ-106 rock station before switching to TV. Since 1987 he has anchored the evening news on WRCB Channel 3.
It was David’s colleague Bill Markham who first suggested a book about Chattanooga radio and television. With the help of numerous contributors, David has assembled the first definitive collection of stories and photographs about the city’s broadcast pioneers, and those who have followed. From the earliest days of WDOD radio in 1925, to the current multi-channel broadcast universe, “Chattanooga Radio and Television” is a must-have for anyone who grew up in the Tennessee Valley.
