DR. WIBLE DIES AT 88
Dr. Darrell E. Wible, one of Ball State University's legendary broadcasting professors, died Sunday at 88. Wible, whose career spanned several decades and included jobs at WBIW in Bedford, WBOW and WTHI in Terre Haute, was the first member of the faculty when Ball State launched the Center for Radio, Television, and Motion Pictures.
Wible's funeral is set for Monday, Aug. 12, at the Central Christian Church, 4950 Wabash Ave. in Terre Haute; visitation is from 10 a.m. ET until services begin at 11.
LEE SCOTT DEPARTS WKU PUBLIC RADIO, WHICH ALSO MAKES SCHEDULE CHANGES
WKU Public Radio in Bowling Green (which simulcasts in the Tri-State on WKPB 89.5 FM in Henderson and Owensboro) recently lost its longtime music director, Lee Scott, to retirement. Scott served in that role for 30 years.
In addition, Western Kentucky University's public radio arm has made some schedule changes. Gone are Marketplace Money and Sunday Baroque; they're replaced by repeats of This American Life and Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! During the week, you'll hear The Takeaway from noon to 1 p.m. and Here and Now from 1 until 3 p.m.
