Patrick Gentry

Don’t tell my bosses but I would almost do this job for free. I dreamed of being in radio at the age of 6 when I knew I wanted to be the voice coming out of the magic box.
 
I spent many of my formative radio years after college spinning tunes and running radio stations. I am now honored to work for the prestigious 1063 WORD News Department.
 
I am a 35-year old South Carolina native with a two year old son and I’m proud to call Upstate South Carolina home and I’m thrilled to report the news in such a great market!
