It's been a sad week here at WAGM. We unexpectedly lost one of our own on Monday morning. Larry Morgan Boulier worked in master control here for more than 20 years. He was someone who had a passion for his job, and always had a smile on his face. We put together something special in his memory.
Kelly Landeen: Larry was a joy to have. He always said hi when you walk by in the hall. He was always there to lend a helping hand.
Rene: I remember when he first started here, he loved working here. It was like he would be here as long and as often as he could be. He'd come in here through snow storms, he'd pretty much sleep here at the station some nights because he couldn't get back to Ashland, but he always had a smile on his face and that's what I remember most about, if equipment wasn't working right or there were other issues, he would still come in with a smile and was just a very positive person to be around.
Brett: I was just learning at the same time he was and I would come in and work on something and it wouldn't work and he'd go, ok what do we have to do to make it work?
Larry's voice: Sports, sponsored in part by Cary Medical Center.
Brett: Loosing Larry is a big loss. He was a key player here.
Kelly: He could get us through a crisis pretty easily, he would keep a level head and get the anchors through it.
Rene: It doesn't only effect us, it effects, you know, a lot of people in the Ashland community just because of the type of person he was.
Brett: He was a very good friend, he will be missed a lot. He'll be missed a lot here.
