This is Miller Media Group president Randal J. Miller, here to remininise about our quarter century serving our listeners and advertisers in the Taylorville, Pana, and Shelbyville markets.

It was the day after Labor Day in 1992, that I took over management, then ownership, in WTIM Radio. 

In the 25 years that have ensued, my wife and I have raised our 3 girls in Taylorville, they all graduated from Taylorville High School, and are now gainfully employed, I'm proud to say!

And, in those 25 years, our Taylorville group has grown from one station to 6.

We thank God for opening the door for our family to come to Taylorville, Pana and Shelbyville 25 years ago.  We are blessed with countless friends, business relationships, and people that have been there for us in good and bad over this past quarter century.

There are 2 special relationships we've worked hard to build over this past quarter century, and that is with our listeners and our advertisers. 

Every day, we strive to create compelling local content that attracts listeners.  And, every day we offer the listenership we've worked hard to build, to local businesses in giving them an opportunity to effectively attract customers to their business.

As we begin the next quarter century of service, I want you to personally know how much YOU are appreciated, and that everything all of us at the Miller Media Group do every day, is to serve YOU.

THANKS for 25 great years...and here's to 25 more!
