I think she came the same year I moved to Charlottesville, 1980.

Youtha and I were part of a group of four who began at the same time to do the 6 to sign-off time period.  We began either late 1979 or early 1980.  Youtha is a class act all the way.  I remember she had a great radio voice and a very positive outlook and attitude.

On another note, I always read the posts but have never written until now.  I still marvel at the long-term benefits that have accrued to me as a result of my brief affiliation with Radio Orange, Arch Harrison, Ross Hunter, et. al.  Time management (30 seconds is a long time) and attention to detail being two of them.  And I hardly ever pop my P's.....

I remember Youtha well.

Ross, you list her as working at the station in 1980. I don't know when she began but she was there at least through 1983 and maybe into early 1984.

Youtha was the Friday night announcer.

Yesterday at Montpelier, I saw Youtha Whitten (now
Youtha Hardman-Cromwell). She had come to be part of the
ceremonies for the dedication of Montpelier’s South Yard
reconstruction project. The South Yard is where some of
Montpelier’s enslaved community lived. The restoration is
being funded by part of a recent gift of 10 million dollars
to Montpelier by David Rubinstein.
Youtha was a part-time weekend
announcer in 1980. She’s now a Professor of Practice in
Ministry and Mission at Wesley Theological Seminary in
Washington, DC. https://www.wesleyseminary.edu/en-us/faculty/facultydirectory/youthahardman-cromwell.aspx
And here’s a link to a photo we
took on Saturday. http://www.wjma.radiohistory.net/WJMA
