Many Smith County residents will recognize the face (or certainly the voice!) that graces the cover of this month’s EWAVES Magazine, a publication produced by the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame.

Dennis Banka, owner and operator of the Carthage radio station, WUCZ (104.1 The Ranch), got the opportunity to tell the story of his journey from radio DJ to station owner in a detailed feature article.

Banka was first hired to work at the Carthage radio station in 1991, and he has been the station owner since 2006. 

Along with being involved in local community radio, Banka also makes a point to be involved in the larger broadcasting community. Currently, Banka serves on the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters board, as well as the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame board.

You can read the full article about Dennis Banka in the January 2019 edition of EWAVES Magazine here. 

Congratulations, Dennis!
