Ed Dodson
For many years now, WCRK listeners have literally grown up listening to the voice of Ed Dodson each morning. You can hear Ed from 5 to 9 each weekday morning on WCRK. Ed was born and raised in Athens, Tennessee where he graduated from McMinn County High School. He then attended Tennessee Wesleyan College and served four years in the United States Air Force. Ed is an active member of Alpha Baptist church in Morristown. His favorite hobby is golf (whenever he can play!) His favorite book is he Bible and he loves history. Ed has one daughter, Vicki Ellen Short, and six grandchildren.

The longtime, legendary voice of the Lakeway Area was silenced on Friday, February 7, with the sudden passing of Ed Dodson. He was 82.
It is impossible for us to put into words what he meant to this community and for more than two generations of WCRK Radio listeners - so we will let you do the honor.
...
I just want to say that Ed will surely be missed! He was a great man and it was always great to hear his voice on the radio every morning. May God be with you all and keep his tradition alive.

To the staff of WCRK and family of Mr. Ed Dodson, Just wanted to send in my most sincere condolences during this time of loss. Growing up in Morristown, Mr. Dodson was both a legend and an icon. My grandparents, my mom, me, and now my little cousins are avid listeners. I remember being a kid with my mom at Shoney's and hearing the "man on the radio" ordering and wanting to say hello. My mom took me over and I got to say "hello" and he was very kind.
...
Ed was an easy person to grow close to. Over the past years we have continued to meet and stay in touch through out the weeks. Ed took interest in me, my family, my children, and my grandchildren. Ed loved his family and spoke of them regularly. Ed and I labeled each other as workaholics but Ed loved what he did all of these many years. To Vicki and the rest of the family our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ed will surely be missed, but not forgotten.

Ed was a fixture on WCRK in Morristown for many years. He was also one of the first real "fans" I had as a broadcaster. His support early in my career meant a lot. He always enjoyed talking about the Vols and the latest happenings at Morristown West and East High. Morristown has lost a true legend, and I have lost a dear friend. My prayers are with Ed and his family this morning.
- Darren ------------------------------------------------------------- Ed was the standard for what a gentleman should be. His humor, compassion, patience, and character made everyone feel at home. Those of us who had Ed pass through our lives are extremely lucky. For those of who were lucky enough to work with him are luckier and we are better people because of him. The man my children called "Mr. Ed" will be sorely missed for now. Today he is in heaven' radio station with Jeep Rouse talking people into putting their telephones in a paper bag so the phone company can blow the dust out of the lines and signing checks with the name "John Hancock".
Till we meet again Ed.

Ed had such an easy way about him, a soothing voice that I have heard for nearly 50 years and I am going to miss that voice. Always an optimist, sometimes a prankster but always a friend. He could remember you maybe not in name but in face and made you feel that while speaking you had the floor. A good listener and if he had opinions he would let listeners know they were just his opinions leaving room for the other side of the story to be debated. Ed was a wonderful person, caring individual and all around God fearing man that I personally am going to miss more than words can say. I will miss he and Ed Arnold going over the trivia list in the mornings.
...
What sad news, I have grown up listening to Mr. Dodson. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
...
My childhood memories are sweeter because I grew up listening to Ed on my way to school every morning..and especially on snowy days waiting for Ed to announce that there will be NO SCHOOL in Hamblen County schools today! He just had a way of making a snow day sooooooo exciting and special! His sweet comforting voice IS my childhood,and it's hard to let him go. God bless WCRK, and may his legacy live on. Hopefully you will play excerpts of his lifetime of radio work from time to time so that we may continue to hear that sweet comforting voice for years to come, so that he will NEVER be forgotten!
----------------------------------
I was telling my co-worker, Don Britton, just a few weeks ago that Ed Dodson is truly a Morristown are treasure.
...
I am so sad that our sweet Ed has left this Earth….Hometown radio will never be the same…Much love and prayers to Vickie and his WCRK radio family.
--------------------------------------
Lost a dear friend and past co worker. Ed always had a smile on his face, and offered to help his fellow co workers. So blessed to have worked with him, and other great people at Wcrk. We love and miss you Ed.

How saddened I am to hear about the death of one of my favorite people, Mr. Ed Dodson of WCRK. His voice was such a presence in my house growing up and long before my children were even born I often joked with him my kids knew his voice as well as their dad's and me when they were born.
...
E whispered to Ed "Peace be Thine and gave him wings to fly.
...
I am so sad to hear the passing of Ed. I am 50 years old so I can say I have heard his voice most everyday in my home. Mother and Dad always had the radio on WCRK first think in the morning and all day. his voice is what I heard when I got up. I looked forward for the Turkey shoot at Thanksgiving and Ed bringing in Ol Santa Claus around 5:00 at Christmas time. so many memories of him. I took the tradition on to my home with my family for my children and grandchildren. we will miss him and never forget him.

The staff of the Morristown-Hamblen Library would like to offer our condolences to Ed Dodson's family and WCRK. We welcomed him into our homes and families every morning he was on air. Ed was a great man and a great advocate of the Lakeway area, including the library. He will be missed!
...
I, along with this entire city, grew up waiting in eager anticipation for Ed to announce...THERE WILL BE NO SCHOOL IN Morristown City, & Hamblen County Schools TO-DAY !!!!! His comforting voice will be missed so badly, it will take time to let it go. It would be nice to hear old clips of Ed from time to time, ESPECIALLY during school closings. Hopefully WCRK can edit in some of his past school closing announcements and air them so future generations can feel that same magic!

I have known Ed Dodson nearly all my life, though listening to the radio and going to church together. In the early 80's we were always playing pranks on someone and also doing pranks to Ed. I had the privilege singing in the choir with him at Alpha Baptist Church for many years. One of my best memories of Ed Dodson is when he and our Pastor Dr DeArmond and my son Andy Rhea were visiting a man to share the plan of salvation. After getting back in the car my son asked Ed why didn't the man accept Christ as his Savior? Ed tried to explain and then asked Andy if he would like to ask Jesus to come into his heart. Right there in the car, my son gave his life to the Lord. I will never forget Ed leading my son to the Lord! That is the most important thing that an individual can do in his life. He will be sadly missed.

Ed Dodson helped get me get up for school everyday, growing up I would be half asleep eating breakfast at the kitchen table with my family in the mornings and I would listen to him and he would help us start our day. I especially loved on those snowy mornings when he would announce no school in Hamblen County! My husband and I are listeners of WCRK and we will really miss his humor and the love he had for his community and the people who live in it. Our community has lost a special man.Prayers to his family.
...
From the first day I walked into the WCRK building on Brown Avenue and was then hired by the station, it was a pleasure to see Ed Dodson each and every time we spoke. Whether it was a professional or personal interaction, I always felt affected by his quick words of encouragement and the testimony he was just as eager to share with me. A true gentleman of the profession and a legend in the Lakeway community whose legacy will long be felt. I can almost envision the conversations he had with his maker, thanking Him for what God had blessed him with and in turn, sharing those blessings with everyone who crossed his path. The reason I say that is because of that very same personal testimony which wasn't far from Ed's lips as soon as I spent more than a few minutes with him. is example has influenced my life in a way which can't be repaid other than by trying to somehow approach the same standards of integrity. In fact, I could open my dictionary and under the word "integrity" is that same dapper picture of Ed which will remain etched in my mind.

To her and us, Ed was the "voice" of Morristown.
