Margaret is hostess for "On the Move With Margaret" on the
Monday morning "Coffee Hour" each week. Margaret is retired
from 25 years of business administration and public relations. She's
a graduate of Limestone College in Gaffney, and also attended Kings
Business University in Charlotte, NC. Overall, she has about 15 years
of broadcasting experience. Margaret's a parent with one daughter and
two grandchildren, who live in Texas. She is the guardian caretaker
of three canines and one feline companions, which make up a family in
their Newberry home. Her favorite
song is "To God Be the Glory," and The Lettermen are her favorite
singing group. She's proud to say that the Bible is her favorite book,
and her hobbies include mental and physical fitness.
Curtis Loftis, Director of State of SC Office on Aging, visited Newberry
during Older Americans Month as guest for WKDK to kick off Older Americans
Month for the month of May. He presented Margaret Brackett with a recogition
certificate honoring her as Senior of the Day during the Senate and
House of Representatives session. Lt. Governor Andre Bauer presented
Mrs. Brackett to the legislators.
is our Tuesday morning hostess for the "Coffee Hour," and she
is the Executive Director of the Newberry Opera House. In fact, she began
hosting the "Coffee Hour" about five years ago when "Mr.
C interviewed me about the Opera House, and I never left!" Deborah
has been to many places around the world, but she says that her "most
memorable moment" was actually coming to Newberry. "Of all
the places in the world that I have lived, I am proud and grateful to
truly call Newberry home," she says. And we're all certainly
glad she's here! Tune in to Deborah and the Tuesday morning "Coffee
Hour" on WKDK!
Davis Summer is Newberry born, Newberry bred--and when she dies, she'll
be Newberry dead (ie, buried in Rosemont)! She attended Newberry County
public schools (NHS, '70) and had the great, good fortune to be in English
classes taught by Mrs. Marty Mathis and Mrs. Dot Epting. From them,
she learned much about grammar and good humor, and from NHS band director,
Miss Lorraine Paris, she learned much about diligence and the importance
of being prompt. Sue and her husband, Henry ("a lawyer/county councilman/financial
planner/and all-around nice guy!") have three "grown-up and
wonderfully entertaining children": Walter Munson, Janie, and Buffy.
In addition to her success as a writer (selected by "The State"
newspaper as one of its first community columnists and two-time winner
of the SC Fiction Project), Sue has co-hosted the Thursday morning "Coffee
Hour" on WKDK for several years. During June Dairy Month, Sue and
Andy Hawkins pulled off the first-ever cheese carve-off of Newberry
landmarks and "hysterical sites!" She once actually made an
Easter basket "on-the-air" and on the 80th birthday of legendary
fiddler, Pappy Sherrill, Sue helped host a birthday party for him at
the station with "Aunt Polly's Cold Oven Pound Cake." Tune
in to Sue Summer and the "Coffee Hour"--Thursdays on WKDK!
Andy is our Friday morning "Coffee Hour" hostess, and a monthly
reporter of the Newberry County Memorial Hospital (NCMH) board meetings
(incidentally, Andy is Public Relations Representative of NCMH). She
and her husband, Mike, have two children--Heather and Quentin; and in
her spare time, she enjoys reading, listening to music, gardening, and
traveling. In addition to her trip to Italy with her mother to visit
her daughter, Heather, one of her most "memorable moments"
has been the opportunity to interview Stella Stellini for WKDK.
