NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 18, 2013) 650 AM WSM marked the 30 radio anniversary of long- time evening show host and Country Radio Hall of Famer Eddie Stubbs this past Monday night with a star-packed evening of music and celebration at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The live show aired on 650 AM and WSMOnline.com, and was presented by long- running WSM clients Springer Mountain Farms, the Ernest Tubb Record Shop, and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Visit http://www.wsmonline.com/watch-listen/intimateevening/ to access the special on-air content. WSM morning man and fellow Country Radio Hall of Famer Bill Cody hosted the event that featured performances and speeches from Country Music Hall of Fame members Bill Anderson, Ray Price, and Jean Shepard, along with Josh Turner, Ronnie Milsap, Ricky Skaggs, Del McCoury, Dailey & Vincent, Gene Watson, Riders In The Sky, Duane & Norah Lee Allen, Cheryl White, Bobby Wright, Larry Stephenson, contemporary singer/songwriters Shawn Camp and Ronnie Bowman, plus a pre-recorded message and gospel performance of “Wonderful” from the Chuck Wagon Gang. Recorded messages and letters were also presented from long-time friends Hairl Hensley, Steve Wariner, Marty Stuart, and Country Music Hall of Famer Merle Haggard. Tennessee Music Commissioner Hank Adam Locklin presented a proclamation from Governor Bill Haslam deeming Jan. 14 a day of recognition for Stubbs in Tennessee.  “I was truly blessed by every participant of the evening,” said Stubbs. “Aside from their status in the industry, those talents were delivered by some of my personal favorites in the business.” Stubbs began his radio career in 1983 at WYII in Williamsport, Maryland, moving the following year to WAMU in Washington, D.C. where his programs were heard until 2007. His WSM career started in 1995 doing historical research and on-air work, later that same year becoming a Grand Ole Opry announcer. He began the 7PM to Midnight shift on July 8, 1996, and now sixteen years later, he holds the record as the longest consecutively tenured host for that time slot since WSM began. He was inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2012. 650 AM WSM’s first official broadcast day was October 5, 1925. The station is the radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, which has been broadcast live over the airwaves since its inception. WSM can be picked up in 38 states on 650 AM and worldwide at wsmonline.com or our mobile app. A weekly listing of all WSM programming is available at WSMOnline.com.

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
