Station Manager Dave Taylor
Dave Taylor's days with KWFC started back in the 1980s while he was a student at Baptist Bible College in Springfield. Most people who listened during that time remember him as the afternoon DJ. Dave left KWFC in 1994 to begin pastoral work in Arizona. He returned to the station in 2003 as morning show co-host and an underwriting representative. Dave would later become Underwriting Director, and in 2009 he was promoted to Station Manager.
Dave won the Singing News Golden Mic award in September 2008 and again in February 2015. He has been a top five finalist for the Singing News Favorite DJ award. You can hear Dave every weekday morning from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., and on Sunday's from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on KWFC.
