George McGovern

George began his radio career at the age of 15 as a way to finance opera lessons. That’s right. This talented former program director and deejay for Lakeland’s WQPD and WONN wanted to perform on stage as an opera singer.

Things didn’t work out that way though, and he went on to continue his work in radio, pulling stints at WMFJ/Daytona Beach, WPDQ/Jacksonville, and WLCY/St. Petersburg prior to his move to Lakeland. 

George left Polk County in 1981, eventually got out of radio, and opened a bar on St. Pete Beach.
