Leatha Jackson, T-Bone’s Records and Cafe, and FestivalSouth founder Dr. Jay Dean were all inducted as inaugural members of the new Best of the Pine Belt Hall of Fame during the recent BOPB awards gala held at the Saenger Theater in downtown Hattiesburg.
The Hall of Fame is the brainchild of Signature Magazine publisher David Gustafson, who said he wanted a way to honor businesses and individuals who have gone above and beyond to improve the quality of life here in the Pine Belt.
It has always been said that if you pick a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Tom Colt knows this to be fact as he calls his job with Rock 104 nothing but fun. That fun has landed him the Best of the Pine Belt ‘Best Radio Music DJ’ designation for 2016.
Colt stumbled into journalism with a desire to do radio. He never longed to be a reporter, simply to work for a radio station. And a journalism degree seemed like the way to go.
