A former member of the WHOP staff has passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Funeral services will be 11am Tuesday at Maddux-Fuqua Hinton Funeral Home for 59-year old Deborah Pryor Young of Elkton, who spent several years at WHOP in the 1970’s and 80’s in several different capacities.
Known then as Debbie Joiner, she worked with Jim Love in the news room and also worked in the programming department. Listeners may also remember Debbie from when she hosted a women’s program on WHOP.
She would also go on to become a weather reporter at TV-43, before taking a job at the Hopkinsville Planning Commission.
Ms. Young is survived by her husband, two daughters, a son, brother, sister and four grandchildren.
