WSQL has announced the addition of Ken Ander-son and Tom Stanwood to the radio station.

Anderson is the station's new manager of sales, programming and new projects. Stanwood is the station's new executive administrator.

An Arkansas native, Anderson has been in television in Mississippi his entire career.

He has been a TV sports anchor, worked with the University of Mississippi hosting and producing their coaches' television shows, conducted college football and basketball play-by-play, and for more than 25 years he has owned a broadcast television production company in Mississippi.

Recently, for eight years, he hosted and produced weekly sports television programs covering college sports in the SEC. These programs aired throughout the southeast on two regional sports cable TV networks.

Two years ago, Anderson and his wife, Nancy, fell in love with Brevard and have enjoyed getting involved in the abundant outdoor activities and the local music scene. Anderson is also an amateur guitar player/singer.

"WSQL has an important role in promoting everything Brevard, from advertising local businesses and helping them grow and thrive, to promoting local activities and local music," Anderson said. "WSQL really is the voice of Transylvania County."

Stanwood's broadcast experience began when he enrolled at Temple University in Philadelphia as a communications major and combined a full-time on-air news job with the city's WIBG Radio 99.

Later, he joined the Atlantic Go Patrol, the nation's first and only dial-wide helicopter news and traffic-reporting service.

His other Philadelphia assignments included radio and television reporting at WFIL-AM-FM-TV as a reporter and anchor.

In the ensuing years, Stanwood took on radio and television assignments that took him to the U.S. Virgin Islands for 18 years.

He later transitioned into upper management, including stops in Naples, Fla., and Clayton, Ga., where he became the radio station's general manager.

Stanwood was then hired by a radio group as chief operating officer for 14 radio stations, including in northeast Georgia, Western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina.

He retired in 2006, but after his recent move to Brevard with his wife, Joyce, he had another thought. Even after 50 years in broadcasting, his discovery of WSQL on the airwaves convinced him that there was still another chapter to be written.

Don DeBiase has retired from managing the station but will continue co-hosting The Morning Show with Don and Ea.
