Get in touch with Lee Rogers!

I serve as 106.3 WORD News Director.  I'm an upstate native and have been in radio since 1979 starting as a part time weekend announcer at Rock 101.

I worked at several upstate radio stations in Anderson and Greenville through the years working Rock, Top 40, Country and News/Talk formats. I've worked as announcer, music director, program director, operations manager, general manager, account executive and news anchor.  I've been married for 28 years and have 3 kids.  I enjoy college football and basketball (Go Tigers!), NFL and motorsports. You can find me on "The Tara Show" as a Morning News Anchor.

Get in touch with Ed!

I have been in radio for 40+ years. My career in this wonderful field started in my hometown of Storm Lake, Iowa back in 1968. Since leaving the nest, I’ve worked in Iowa, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. This includes being an owner of an AM-FM station in Georgia.

I enjoy working for Entercom and the people that are around me from day to day.
  I also enjoy being the voice for the Greenville Drive during baseball season.  If you see me at the field make sure you stop and say hi!

Get in touch with Anne!

I have been working for 106.3 WORD since before we were on the FM dial.
I am a Clemson Graduate.  B.A. English Literature/Minor: Journalism
I have been known to jump out of airplanes.  Perfectly good ones.
I have my CWP, love to shoot and am an excellent shot.
I love to run, cook, paint, fish, water-ski and was a competitive diver.
I'm a military brat, youngest daughter of an Air Force Colonel and a beautiful Norweigan mom.  Married an Irishman named Dan Roberts and have a menagerie of furry critters.

After graduating from Clemson, I traveled the U.S. and Canada with a professional theater company for two years as an actress and professional pianist.  Landed a scholarship at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco and worked in t.v. and on stage in various productions and commercials. Came back home to Greenville to look after my Mom and Dad and after a play production here in town, I was approached by an audience member who asked me if I would be interested in reporting traffic on the radio!  I worked my way up to the job of Director of Operations for Metro Networks Traffic and was hired by 106.3 WORD as a part-time news reporter back when we were only on the AM dial.  When Metro Networks disolved, 106.3 WORD kept me on and the rest - as they say - is history!

I love my job.  I love working for Bobby Mac for many, many reasons.  One of which is that he actually knew Lawrence Welk.  Two true gentlemen.  Two of my heros.

 Get in touch with Roger!

Roger Davis 
is a veteran broadcaster with more than forty years experience in news gathering and reporting.  He earned an English degree (BA) from West Texas A&M University with a minor in mass  communication and has won regional Emmys and the DuPont-Columbia award as a television reporter, producer and anchorman in Atlanta.  But Roger's success was founded years earlier right here in the  Upstate while working as a "cub reporter" with some of the region's legendary broadcasters.
(After early retirement Roger had returned to his hometown of Greenville to be closer to his family, especially his four grandchildren, but soon found that life without a deadline just wasn't the same.  So he  went back to work as a radio newsman, as it happened, just in time for Nine-Eleven.  He is especially pleased with the opportunity at Entercom and WORD to be working with Lee Rogers, a former colleague  and occasional competitor, but always a friend. 
Roger is a Hands-on-Greenville volunteer, a member of the vestry at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church (where he also mows the lawn) and an incurable minor league baseball fan.)

 Get in touch with Patrick!

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!
