A Keystone State Legend Is Remembered


From Presque Isle State Park to Waldameer Park & Water Word, the city of Erie, Pa., has its charms. For radio industry veterans and two generations of residents of this city along a large lake that bears its name, WJET was also one of Erie’s greatest attractions.

For 35 years on the AM band and an additional quarter-century at 102.3 MHz, WJET was a bit of a local legend. Among its “Good Guy” DJs some 50 years ago was Randy Michaels.

At the same time, WJET-24 has provided local viewers with ABC programming for 52 years.

All of this can be traced back to an investment made in 1951 by Myron Jones.

As first reported by Fybush.com, Jones has passed away at the age of 92.
