William E. Benns, Jr. (1918-1999)

Ben Cagle – “WFLI was an overnight ratings success positioning itself as a Chattanooga radio contender. For Johnny Eagle and his flock of eager young DJ’s, the rock and roll banner was firmly anchored in WFLI’s rich radio history.  WFLI soared high in Chattanooga’s radio ratings, sailing into a lofty permanent place in the minds of all who witnessed this fast moving phenomena.”
