WCOM Bids Farewell to Long Time Host

For over 10 years, WCOM listeners have been entertained by a unique mix of Jazz and Standards on Saturdays at noon.

Fred Wasser's Breathing Room premiered on November 20, 2004, Fred's relaxed, casual and informative style made his show a very popular weekly feature on WCOM.

Fred is leaving the area to pursue an opportunity to produce programs for Nevada Public Radio KNPR in Las Vegas, he will be missed. His last show is May 16, 2015.

Ann Parrent host of "This is Easy" will be moving her show to Saturday at noon.

Please join us in wishing Fred the best as he begins his new opportunity.
