Local News

WTIM turned 65 last week and the celebration isn't over yet. Matt McLemore is now retired from WTIM, but was the morning man for 25 years, conducting interviews, hosting swap shop, and reporting the news. McLemore looked back on his time at WTIM and said his time there allowed him to stay in a steady environment, let him to connect with the local people, and also brought him a lot of confidence.

McLemore said, looking back, one of his most memorable moments came from the 1990's where a woman in Roby barricaded herself in her house from the police for more than a month, which gave him the opportunity to speak on a national news platform.

McLemore appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
