No particular family runs it, I just meant that if you have a family member that's an employee there, you'll have a job waiting for you, no matter how much of a slacker you are.

I lived in Asheville from birth in 1956 until 1994 when I moved to Wilmington so I know history. I worked at WBMS in Black Mountain in 1975 after high school and at WBHN in Bryson City and for Ardell Sink at WKYK and from 1975 to 1980 at WISE for Rick Jorgenson. I had the honor of working for Zeb Lee at WSKY in 1980-81 before finishing my broadcast career at WRAQ 1380. I knew personally Little Joe Brown as I followed him in mid-days at WSKY, I worked with Doctor John and Vince Rutherford Dawn, Dude Walker, Mike Edwards and remember Scotty Rhodarmer and I am a cousin of Wiley Carpenter. With all this said the FCC and Corporate radio killed Zeb Lee I was there and saw it all. The location on Hazel's Mill Road is the previous WLOS AM, then WKKE, WRAQ, now WKJV. Working at Lookout Road at WISE was awesome and so was the view from the TOP of the Northwestern Bank Building where WSKY's studios were. A great man died because of stupid people like John McCain who never bothered to know what he was doing in congress.
