Just over ten years ago, KWGS hit the jackpot.*

Due to budget cuts during the 1990s, the station had eliminated its local news service. When I became General Manager in 2000, one of my first goals was to restore a local news operation to the station. In 2008, we were finally able to revive a local news service. I knew it would be a long road to make KWGS a respected and trusted local news presence again.
