Denis O’Hayer signs off from WABE: A look back at his 42-year news career

For the first time in four decades, Atlantans will have to navigate the news cycle without veteran broadcast reporter Denis O’Hayer’s treasure trove of Atlanta institutional knowledge.

Celeste Headlee

GPB host Celeste Headlee is here to listen. No, really, she is.

On Second Thought host Celeste Headlee came to Atlanta with many questions. Perhaps most poignant: “How do you live in what’s basically the black capital of America . . . and yet just a few miles outside of town you see Confederate flags flying everywhere?”

The Moth launches its StorySLAM competition in Atlanta

More than 20 years ago, The Moth started life as a group of friends telling stories on a St. Simons Island porch. The storytelling program will finally have a permanent presence in Atlanta with its StorySLAM open-mic competition, which will be held monthly at Dad's Garage beginning March 13.

46. Ryan Cameron

Between his gigs as host of the Ryan Cameron Morning Show on V-103 and Hawks PA announcer, “The Ryan King” could be described as the Voice of Atlanta.

Where are they now? The Morning X

In an inspired move, Atlanta Top 40 station 99.7 FM, Power 99, rebranded itself in October 1992 as 99X—with a lineup of Gen X-skewing grunge rock and attitude-laced talk.
