WFMY-WZDX GM Larry Audas to Retire

By Kevin Eck 

WFMY and WZDX general manager Larry Audas has announced his decision to retire.

“I’m leaving my post(s) as President & GM of WFMY News 2 Greensboro and WZDX FOX54 Huntsville,” he wrote on social media.  “I think they call it retirement. The thought wrestled with me for months. But off we go to better serve kids, grandkids and the most supportive wife ever, together every step of our nomadic travels. Jo would not want me to mention her by name.”

Audas was named gm of the Tegna stations in 2011 after working at KTHV in Little Rock, Arkansas since 2002. Before that, he was the news director at WLTX in Columbia, S.C., from 1998-2002 and the primary anchor at KTHV from 1995-1998. Before joining what was then Gannett, he was an anchor and reporter for KPRC in Houston and an anchor and reporter at KFOR in Oklahoma City and KSWO in Lawton, Oklahoma. Audas began his broadcasting career as an announcer with KQCV radio in Oklahoma City after earning a B.A. in Radio/TV Production at Bob Jones University.
