So What Does WGAS Mean?

No, it's not a station in the middle of nowhere

The best boss I, er, WWR, ever had was a guy named Jim Farley, who hired WWR as a lad at NBC at the age of 19. Jim later went on to a top post at ABC Radio and now programs Washington's all-news giant WTOP, to which WWR is a frequent contributor. 

There are too many stories to tell about Jim, and lessons learned from him, but one is that journalists should always remember the WGAS standard. Stories should pass this standard or else they shouldn't be on your station or network. 

What does WGAS mean?

WHO GIVES A S***.

Have a nice day.
