The Charles D. Mefford Broadcasting Scholarship
One $750 Scholarship Awarded
Chuck D. Mefford came to Lansing in 1964 from Madison, Wisconsin where he was associated with his partners at Metropolitan Radio Corporation since 1959. In Lansing, Mefford acted as President, General Manager, and Owner of WITL-FM. It was a station he had nurtured to ratings success and then an AM/FM powerhouse affectionately called “Whittle” by legions of listeners and advertisers.
A scholarship given in his name was established by family and friends. This scholarship will be awarded to an individual whose desire it is to enter into radio or television broadcasting.
Thank you applicants! Winners will be notified in February 2023 and celebrated at the Student Awards Luncheon at the Great Lakes Media Show on March 15, 2023.
