NASHVILLE (WRCB)- Longtime US-101 radio personality Dex will be inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in the air personality category on Tuesday. Dex, whose real name is Bill Poindexter, is in his 20th year at US-101. He currently co-hosts with Melissa "Mo" Turner Wagner.
When he learned of the honor in October, Dex told Channel 3 Eyewitness News, "This is the biggest thrill you can imagine. I'll be the first from Chattanooga in the Country DJ Hall of Fame, alongside people like Ralph Emery, Charlie Douglas, Coyote Calhoun, Gerry House and other big-time, nationally known deejays. I started in this business 41 years ago, and this is beyond my wildest dreams."
Dex began his radio career in 1971 on WRIP in Rossville, while still attending Rossville High School. He later worked at top-40 giant WFLI before entering the record promotion business with ABC and RCA Records.
The award will be presented at the Nashville Convention Center on Tuesday as part of the Country Radio Seminar.
US-101 is an official radio partner of Channel 3. The station will have a crew in Nashville for the ceremony this week.
