Video bio of Ed Roehling, inducted to Indiana Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame in 2016;

Ed Roehling always wanted to be a broadcaster and received his degree from Butler University in communications.  In his mid-twenties, he organized a group of investors to put a station in Winchester, Indiana. He went on to manage radio stations in Minnesota and Michigan before returning to Indiana. In 1971, Roehling and a group of local investors were delighted when the FCC finally granted the license they had applied for in Rushville, Indiana. He also was able to get WWWY-FM on the air in Columbus, Indiana. He also served as a professor for the communications program at Indiana Central College (now University of Indianapolis) and served as general manager for the public radio station on campus, WICR-FM, for 20 years. Roehling was vice president for Hoosier Broadcasting for 10 years, a company that owned three educational stations licensed to Cloverdale/Indianapolis, Lebanon and Greencastle/Indianapolis. Roehling is now the president and Broker of Roehling Broadcast Services, Ltd., which serves the radio broadcast industry with appraisal, brokerage and consulting services for individual and company acquisitions and sales of broadcast properties.
