Sally Hille decided when she was 90 years old to go back into radio. That was in 2010. She felt it was time for a program for older seniors. Good News For Seniors that is heard every Sunday at 10:40am on WMOA. It is dedicated to seniors 70 and older. "I decided after I read that the fastest growing segiment of our population happens to be 100 year olds." Her salary goes to a charity each month. Sally started in radio 50 years ago when she vacationed in Dayton, Ohio, and had an opportunity to work at radio station WING. Her boss found out she was going to Ohio State in the fall and asked if she would like to work at WCOL in Columbus and go to night school.She accepted and worked at WCOL for two years. All radio then was done live...even the station breaks. She so much wanted to make a break on the radio, so she begged the announcer on duty to let her do that, while the boss was gone. He did..and she made the break...walking on air. However, the boss returned and threatened to fire them both.."Don't you know?" he said.."That women's voice are not wanted on the radio?" Then she had an opportunity to be a junior writer at WHKC (now WTVN) in Columbus. ) She quite college and joined the station, staying 5 years and becoming the Continuity Director (a job until then only held by men.) She moved to Marietta with her doctor husband in 1951. Thirteen years later she was asked to work for 2 weeks at WMOA and ended up staying 5 years. She started Sally"s Social Corner, one of the first women's show in the area. At that time the station was in a building downtown. When the station was sold and moved to Lancaster Street, she was asked to do more programs and 2 weather forcast. One was at 5PM and the other...a rather sexy weather girl at 11PM....The station put a line into her house , and discovered the best place to put it was in her large bathroom upstairs . So she did her programs there (no interviews) for 2 years. She retired from radio WBRJ 30 years ago . During that time she had an interview show and interviewed many people of the area and celebrities from Kenley Players in Columbus. "Radio is so different today...and I am so pleased to be a part of all this at my age! "
