WGRC Founders Announce Retirement

It all started in the early 1980s when Larry and Janet Weidman began to formulate the plan to bring contemporary Christian radio to the 'Pennsylvania Heartland'.

Fueled by response to a syndicated program that Larry was hosting on a Central Pennsylvania radio station, the Weidman's started the long process of getting WGRC on the air by establishing a non-profit corporation, having an engineering study completed to file with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and raising funds to finance what was called the Mid-Susquehanna Christian Radio Project.

After the FCC approved the application for construction of the new station in August, 1987, the many pieces of construction finally came together when WGRC signed on the air in April, 1988.

Now after leading the ministry for nearly 30 years, Larry and Janet Weidman announce that they are retiring from WGRC effective December 31, 2012 and will be moving to the North Atlanta area to be close to their daughter, son-in-law and four grandchildren.

With the retirement, a programming change will also take place on WGRC.  'The Matter At Hand' talk show, hosted by Larry for the past 13 years, will also be retired.

From its initial broadcasting on two frequencies, WGRC has grown to serve 17 counties with eight frequencies as well as streaming online and through the TuneIn Radio app.

Larry Weidman began his Christian radio career in 1966 at WPGM/Danville, PA, and worked for WMHK/Columbia, SC from 1976-1980 as news and public affairs director and AM drive host.
