1 A QUARTER CENTURY OF SERVICE TO THE.HEART OF INDUSTRIAL AMERICA
3 ON THE OCCASION OF OUR 25d ANNIVERSARY.. we at WWVA wish to express our deepest gratitude to our many friends whose confidence and loyalty have played such an important part in our continuous growth over the past twenty -five years. Today; pleasant memories of that past are mingled with hopeful anticipation of greater happiness to come... of peace and fulfillment for the peoples of our mighty land. Since our first broadcast twenty -five years ago, we have come a long way... but not alone. Our thanks, then, to you... our steadfast companions at this cherished milestone.
4 President The characteristic foresight and thoughtful management of Mr. George B. Storer has been the vital factor in the rise of WWVA from a small 50 -watt station in 1926 to one of the nation's outstanding 50,000 -watt broadcasters. Mr. Storer's thorough conception of modern broadcasting dates back to 1927 when as an advertiser he used radio station WTAL in Toledo, Ohio. Late in 1927, visualizing the possibilities and future of radio broadcasting, Mr. Storer purchased the Toledo Broadcasting Company, owners of WTAL, changing the call letters to WSPD, which is now one of the important stations in the Fort Industry group. In March, 1931, the broadcasting interest had grown to such a point that it was decided to expand and the company purchased Radio Station WWVA, in Wheeling, W. Va., then owned by the West Virginia Broadcasting Corp. The Fort Industry Company now operates seven AM radio stations, five FM radio stations, and four television stations in Miami, Atlanta, Fairmont, Cincinnati, Toledo, Detroit, San Antonio, and Wheeling. Each of these stations is operated on a local basis to best serve the individual community. During World War II, Mr. Storer took time out from his broadcasting activities to serve as a Commander in the U. S. Navy. Since 1948, The Fort Industry Company has had a television application on file for Wheeling with the FCC. Every effort is being made to provide outstanding television service just as soon as it is possible. SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT AND TREASURER Mr. J. H. Ryan, who with Mr. Storer has guided the destinies of WWVA since the station was purchased in March, 1931, is Senior Vice -President and Treasurer of the Fort Industry Company. Very few organizations are favored with a finer inspiration to achieve than that which has radiated through the years from the friendly and thoughtful personality of Mr. Ryan. He has seen WWVA grow out of its swaddling clothes into its present man -size operation. During World War II, Mr. Ryan was selected as the radio broadcaster in charge of the Radio Division of the U. S. Dept. of Censorship, and in 1944 he was honored by election to the Presidency of the National Association of Broadcasters. Mr. Ryan's influence on the Friendly Voice From Out the Hills of West Virginia has been far reaching.
5 VICE PRESIDENT AND WWVA MANAGING DIRECTOR William E Rine, Managing Director of WWVA, is also Vice -President of the Fort Industry Company in charge of the Central district, and has under his direction in addition to WWVA, the activities of Radio Station WMMN, in Fairmont, W.

Wailes joined the Fart Industry Company as General Manager in 1946 and on January 9, 1948, was made Executive Vice- President it charge of operations of all Fort Industry stations. He has had a wide and varied career in the radio broadcasting business and was formerly executive head of the Westinghouse Radio Stations, prior to which time he was an executive with National Broadcasting Company for 9 years.

20 PION R Jack Supler is the Pioneer of the present WWVA staff. Born John A. Supler on a farm near Dallas, West Virginia, Jack was winding coils on oatmeal boxes and fiddling with crystal detectors before he was out of high school. When John Stroebel began experimenting in the transmission of voice and music, Jack's home was one of the listening posts. Some circumstance, not now remembered, kept Jack from attending the first transmission under the call letters WWVA, but he assures us he was on hand for the second WWVA broadcast ever made back in December, For years Jack handled virtually all WWVA remote broadcasts and was familiar to Jamboree fans as the "man in the booth ". He is now one of the engineering staff that operates the powerful 50,000 watt WWVA transmitter. Jack is a veteran hunter and fisherman and widely known horseman. Just recently he was elected President of the Interstate Horse Show Association.
