Auburn DJ celebrates 60 years at WAUD

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - The morning show on WAUD in Auburn was a special one on Wednesday as host Bob Sanders celebrated his sixtieth year with the station.

Sanders has hosted his own morning show on WAUD every day since 1955. The 84-year old DJ got his start after he returned to Auburn from serving in the Korean War.

His coworkers say they're not surprised Sanders has stayed on the air for 60 years.

"He's the best talent we have at the station, we have four stations in the building, he's the best talent," said producer Steve Ocean. "He can adlib, tell stories, just quick witted. He was born to be on the radio."

Sanders says in all his years on the job, he's never felt like he's worked a day in his life because he loves what he does.
