Ten Things You Didn’t Know About 92.9 The Lake’s David Morgan
David Morgan does the afternoon show on 92.9 The Lake. I first met David in 1994 at the airport in Houston. We flew him in to interview him for a position with the old LA-99. He did not look like your typical DJ and I could tell right away that he was smarter than most. He proved that when we arrived in Lake Charles.
At the time it was very hard for me to get my job as Program Director done because I spent so much time producing the station’s commercials. I needed to hire a Production Director. I really liked the samples David had mailed me and set up his trip to Lake Charles. I decided to put him to the test and gave him a bunch of commercials to do right then. He did them all perfectly and in short order. He was hired that day. David has been here ever since. He has been Production Director that whole time and went from the afternoon show on LA-99 to the afternoon show on 992.9 The Lake.
