A familiar and steady presence in journalism throughout the Wal-Win area, Terrell Manasco is making his return to WJLX, bringing ample experience in print and broadcast media to his new post.
The Parrish native, whose most recent work includes his stint as editor at 78 magazine, loves writing and engaging with the community. An avid movie watcher, Manasco’s love of film and writing has transcended to the production of three short films: Son of David, The Silver Macguffin and Relics – all three of which are available for viewing on YouTube.
Manasco’s abilities in radio broadcasting and video production, along with talent at sales make him a vital asset to the WJLX team according to station manager Brett Elmore.
“We are pleased to welcome Terrell back to the WJLX family. He will be managing our sales, as well as assisting on the air and with our video productions,” Elmore said. “He’s an old radio pro, is very talented and has been a friend for 25 years now. We are excited to have him on board.”
Manasco expressed his excitement in returning to WJLX, as well as his desire to be part of the company’s growing potential.
“I’m thrilled to be back with the WJLX team again. Brett and Woody are not only two of the sharpest radio minds in the business, but they are also longtime friends of mine. It’s truly a pleasure to work with them again. I’m also looking forward to working alongside Brian and Sebastian as well,” Manasco said. “Radio has been a passion of mine since I was a teen. I’ve worked in various other businesses, but I always seem to find my way back to radio. It seems to be in my DNA. I’ve lived in Walker County all my life and I’ve seen radio stations come and go. I can say with confidence that WJLX is here for the long haul. They’ve not only withstood a floundering economy and a major pandemic, but they also continue to grow, and I see that trend continuing for years to come. I am excited to be a part of that.”
