In late November, the Tuscaloosa community lost a local legend: Longtime WTUG personality, Howard "Lip" Lanier. An upcoming gala will provide a scholarship in his memory.

Lip Lanier's son, Tuscaloosa businessman Cassius Lanier, recently recorded a live video on Facebook, where audio of his father on the air played in the background.

Of course, at WTUG/WTSK we have lost a number of hometown giants in recent years, but they will always live in our hearts. And with this scholarship fund, the legacy of Lip Lanier will continue to thrive.
