Longtime WECO Owner Carl Stump Passes Away

The very first voice heard on WECO Radio all the way back in August of 1970 was Carl Stump. Sadly, Carl passed away December 22nd at the age of 86.

WECO General Manager Ed Knight said on the passing of Carl Stump, “Carl did the morning shift for over thirty years and many of those years also hosted the Bluegrass Tour Unlimited Show on Sunday nights. He established the foundation for WECO’s success. He took a young twenty year old under his wing in 1974 and taught me how to own and operate a local radio station. Carl Stump was more than a business partner and he will be missed.”

A private service will be held. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.davisfuneralhome.com
