Wednesday, November 8, 2017
Three-year-old Isaac Staley and his mother Gracey received a personal tour and visit with Dave Crooks, president and general manager of DLC Media, Inc. Tuesday evening during the Open House for the community. Crooks is pictured showing Isaac where to talk into a microphone so his voice could be recorded.

If there’s a soundtrack to life, Isaac Staley’s is filled with country music, especially that of musical artist Reba McEntire.

The three-year-old toddler loves to get up and dance, which is what lead his parents Gracey and Dean Staley, of Brazil, to bring him to the Open House at DLC Media, Inc. new broadcast center located at 111 W. National Avenue Tuesday.

“He’s very curious about what’s inside,” said Gracey about her son’s interest in radio stations. “That’s why we brought him.”

Isaac and his family got a special treat when president and general manager Dave Crooks showed them the new state-of-the-art facility, which is the home of three area radio stations, including 95-9 The Legend WVIG (Seelyville), Lite 92-7 WFNB and Timeless 1130 & 99.5 WAMB (Brazil).

A little shy at first, Isaac soon warmed up to the idea of having his voice recorded for radio, and even tried on the headphones worn by the radio hosts.

The facility was very busy with members of the community stopping by the former the site of where Jack Leifheits’ Men’s Store was previously located and talking with staff members and radio personalities.

DLC Media, Inc. owns and operates nine radio stations in the Terre Haute region. The additional stations include True Oldies WAXI-FM 104.9 and 105.5 Jack FM WZJK in Rockville, WAMW-FM 107.9, WAMW-AM 1580 and 95.9 in Washington as well as WAKO-FM, WAKO-AM 910 and 99.3 in Lawrenceville, Illinois.
