Bill Dollar has been the program director and afternoon drive host on I-92 Country, WLWI, since July 2005 and continues to be amazed at the generosity and friendliness of the I-92 Country listener.
Bill remembers the large amount of playground equipment at his grade school in Ohio and playing kickball every day at lunch by the auditorium, which was adjacent to a wildlife fishing pond, owned by the state.
Bill was active in band activities in high school, but says he knew most of the other 265 classmates by name or by face. Being in concert band, jazz band, marching band and pep band left just a little time to dabble in the radio station that broadcast at lunch to the entire student body.
That taste of radio led Bill to pursue radio in college and make it his full-time career. Otherwise, you might have seen him in a rock band touring the country, playing drums and possibly having a haircut similar to Animal from the Muppet Show!
Bill's spare time is spent listening to music and riding his bicycles and tending to his family's 8 cats and two dogs. Bill also volunteers with the Elmore County Humane Society and helps with fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. One of Bill's co-workers in Georgia had a daughter who was helped by St. Jude before she had a brain cancer relapse and passed away at age 16.
Bill's most memorable moment so far in radio has been appearing on a pilot episode for a reality show (Mud Lovin' Rednecks) and working the live broadcast for the event on his birthday.
