Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate are pleased to honor the work of members of the broadcast industry such as WTMA's Rocky D; and
Whereas, Rocky D, as his admirers call this Charleston radio celebrity, has graced the airwaves with his voice on WTMA for ten years, a veritable millennium in broadcast years; and
Whereas, born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, he was employed with NBC in Chicago after earning a bachelor's degree in radio/television from a university in Chicago; and
Whereas, Rocky decided to create a radio talk show that tells the truth no matter who gets angry about it, and he now hosts his signature program Radio Free Rocky D from noon to three every weekday; and
Whereas, he has worked in the radio industry on air in Los Angeles, California; New Jersey; and Orlando and Tampa, Florida; and while on the air in Tampa, he was discovered and recruited to join WTMA as part of the talk-show lineup; and
Whereas, tirelessly donating countless hours to organizations, nonprofits, community events, fundraisers, and charities, he has fallen in love with the rich history of the Lowcountry and has been named an honorary member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans; and
Whereas, in his time away from WTMA radio station, he referees ice hockey games and enjoys riding his bike along the Lowcountry beaches; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate are grateful for the long and successful career that radio talk-show host Rocky D has provided for Charleston listeners, and for the information and energy he imparts to his large and enthusiastic audience. Now, therefore,
