Dick Boyce

Originally from Buffalo, New York, Dick came to Florida in 1952 to attend college in St. Petersburg. During the years between then and 1957, he worked part-time at WSUN and also produced the religious program Temple Vespers with Dr. Charles Leaming which was heard daily on the station. Dick was hired as General Manager of WTWB soon after graduating from college in 1957. During those early years, in addition to managing the station, he also worked in sales and did on-air work.

From 1970 to 1983 Dick found time to tour with members of his gospel-singing family (wife Gail and daughters Tina, Kim, and Tanya) as the Melody Three Singers. For 25 of his 40 years with WTWB, Gail, whom he married in 1959, did Traffic and Bookkeeping for the station (1971-1996). Daughter Kim was Miss Florida in 1983 while attending the St. Pete campus of USF, and finished in the Top 10 of 1984’s Miss America Pageant. Today she is also one of America’s top contemporary Christian recording artists.

With permission from WTWB’s owner, L.M. Hughey, Dick got some valuable experience in television management when, for about a year and half from 1982 to 1983, he was General Manager of Christian TV station WCLF Channel 22 in Clearwater, followed by about a year with the station on a part-time basis.

After Carpenter’s Home Church bought and took over WTWB in 1997, Dick retired and today (2005) lives in the Lithia area of Hillsborough County.
