Thomas Eidell is a Theology Major at Southern Adventist University, originally from Elkins, West Virginia. After graduating from high school, he moved to Tampa, FL, in pursuit of a college education. It was in this city that he came to know Jesus Christ as his personal savior, and felt called to a life of ministry. Thomas graduated with a BA of Fine Arts/ Recording Arts from the International Academy of Design and Technology of Tampa. He then decided to move to Collegedale, TN to pursue a degree in Theology. In combining a love for radio and a love for ministry, he hopes to share with many the love of Jesus Christ. Thomas is happily married and enjoys studying the bible, hiking, Appalachian culture and folk music. After Southern, he hopes to spend all of his time teaching and preaching Jesus Christ on as many different platforms as possible.
Scott’s an odd mixture of a lot of things. Born a Yankee, he does his best to fit
in as a Southern gentleman despite his dry sense of humor. He grew up in New York
and graduated from the University of Delaware with a dual bachelor’s degree in business
and economics. He then worked in market research on the Eastern Shore of Maryland
and fell madly in love with his wife, Brenda. They moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,
where he was the business manager for two radio stations for six years.
Brenda gave birth to their first child, prompting a move back to the Eastern Shore to open a daycare center just in time for their second child. After running the daycare center for 10 years, they relocated to Chattanooga to be near Southern Adventist University. While working for WSMC, Scott got his MBA from Southern Adventist University.
As the general manager for WSMC, Scott oversees all operations of the station. In his spare time—apart from tasks in administration, engineering, finance, marketing, programming, and WSMC's website (and if he can sneak out of meetings and phone calls)—he spends time working directly with membership and planned giving and spreading the word about WSMC in the community. He sees WSMC making a difference in the area, building bridges between generations, and being an entertainment option that encourages lifelong learning while being free from commercial clutter and offensive material.
In his personal time, Scott thoroughly enjoys annoying his children with lectures about good morals, playing with his three dogs, reading novels about international espionage, analyzing bizarre facts, and dreaming about new types of gooey chocolate cake.
