Goodbye To A Legend

Posted on: February 21st, 2012 by admin No Comments

After nearly 40 years as a family-owned Top 40 FM in Mobile, WABB has sold and will change formats on the last day of February, 2012.
Dittman Broadcasting always worked very hard to maintain the meaning behind the call letters: Alabama’s Best Broadcasters. It could have just as easily meant, America’s Best Broadcasters.

The level of talent that went through those doors over the years would be impressive in a much larger market…not to mention the ratings success.
Maybe it’s fitting that they’d go out on leap day since they always seemed to be leaps and bounds ahead of stations in cities twice their size. I was proud to be the voice of WABB for several years and having those call letters on my demo meant as much to me as any major market station.

Best wishes to the Dittman family and all the employees who will leave the shag-carpet-comfort (do they still have the shag carpet?) of the WABB studios for the last time in just a few days. You will be missed.
