The voice that speaks my name (at 1:32 into this epic) is that of Doug Limerick (ABC Radio News) who was working at WIXE in Monroe, N.C. at the time. (My Professor of Top 40 Programming was Brother Dave Hedrick, GM/PD at WIXE.) I think the time tone was a direct WIXE rip, too.

Limerick, now an ABC News radio correspondent, will soon replace the late legendary Paul Harvey's timeslot starting Monday.
Limerick will be one of two broadcasters to fill Harvey's timeslot.
Limerick, he said, repeated them all back. "It came down to a good memory," he said. While at WOHS, Limerick played music for what was then a Top 40 station. Watson said he wasn't surprised that Limerick achieved such success later in life. "He was capable," he said. "He's a legend for his voice around here." After attending Wake Forest University where he majored in Speech, Limerick joined the Air Force and ended up as a Russian linguist overseas. From there he worked at several stations in Monroe, Columbia, SC, Raleigh, Charlotte, and more, according to the Radio Television News Directors Association of the Carolinas. In a 1975 interview with The Star, Limerick said he really got his feet wet doing news at WKIX in Raleigh. For nearly two years he was morning news editor. There he "actually learned how to report, how to write, edit and deliver." His day started at the break of dawn, 4:15 a.m. "Many people asked me: why don't you try to get off the morning shift? Limerick said, pointing out that the morning period- the "drive time" - is the "most important shift of the day." "I love radio," Limerick said. He said he had been fascinated with broadcasting since he was a kid. That love of radio earned him two Edward R. Murrow awards, which recognizes outstanding contributions to public radio and honors those who have helped shape its direction. "Most people think that all radio newscasters do is sit there and read material from the wire services," Limerick previously told The Star. But, "We rewrite all the information in our particular delivery style. He said "the most important thing is accuracy and impartiality." Of his own style, Limerick said, "it's people oriented. It's a conversational style, instead of talking down to people I try to talk to them." During his career, Limerick has had the opportunity to interview celebrities such as Bob Hope, George Wallace, Spiro Agnew, and even Paul Harvey, the man whose shoes he would eventually fill. Limerick is married with three daughters and is also a grandfather. He currently resides in Fairfax Station, Va.

Correct me if I am wrong. This morning while watching FOX 5 News, I thought I heard Anchor Will Thomas say something to the effect that he is leaving.
