Former personalities

Myrtle Todd, grandmother of country music recording artist Ty Herndon, hosted a radio show on WPRN-FM and the now-defunct AM sister station WPRN (1330 AM, Butler, Alabamamarker) for more than 40 years. She played mostly Gospel music and discussed community events. Herndon's mother, Peggy, also once hosted a show along with his aunts Lilly and Benny as "The Todd Sisters". Herndon was born in Meridian, Mississippimarker, but grew just across the state line in Butler, Alabamamarker, where the AM station was licensed. The AM sister station's license was officially cancelled by the Federal Communications Commission on October 6, 2003. The FM station, established in 1997, carried Myrtle Todd's show through at least late-2006.
