WSB-Cox Corporate Group

WSB-Cox Corporate Group

This is a group of WSB and Cox Corporate alumni and spouses.  Though still infrequently active with WSB-Television, they invited me to join them a few years ago.  What a treat it has been to hear the reminiscences from people who pre-date my more than half a century with the Cox flagship station.  Sunday evening was the group’s 27th get-together.  Jan Benfield is one of the original members.   She recalls it was an all-female group when they began socializing in 1984.  We’ve been gender integrated since 1987.  Our story telling this evening focused on the legendary WSB Radio’s late Aubrey Morris.

Rhoda--Tera---Paul

His daughter, Rhoda Morris Owens, Aubrey’s widow, Tera, and his son-in-law, Paul Owens, were our honored guests.  We told many loving tales about Aubrey’s exploits..some perhaps a bit embellished with the passage of time.   We ended the evening with an interview with Aubrey that we recorded at a gathering of  the group 5-years ago.  When I asked Aubrey to write his epitaph, he said write, “He loved people.”
