Former Statesboro residents Mike and Don McDougald entertained a crowd Monday at the 37th Annual Bulloch County Historical Society meeting, held at Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church. The brothers regaled members with tales of chasing news and providing music and information to citizens through the city’s very first radio station, WWNS. Joe McGlamery, vice president of the society, introduced the men as “two bangs for the buck” since they each took a turn speaking about the early radio programs. Mike McDougald talked about being born in Statesboro’s historical Norris Hotel.
